Mars Hill Road Widening On Schedule Even Without Federal Funding, Oconee County Officials Say

State Borrowing

Emil Beshara, director of the county's public works department, told the Citizens Advisory Committee on Land Use and Transportation Planning last night that he expects the state to let bids for the project in July.
