It's almost the end of the year, and, in Houston County, leaders say they completed $12.5 million worth of projects, like mostly roadwork and intersection improvements.
Now, they are looking ahead to next year.
"2016, we feel, is going to be even bigger than 2015, as far as completion of projects," Chairman of the Houston County commissioners, Tommy Stalnaker,
He says the "to-do" list is never-ending. Major developments include infrastructure.
This year, some of the items checked off included widening Feagin Mill Road and Gunn Road and improving the intersection at Old Hawkinsville and SR 247.
Next year, they will widen Carl Vinson Parkway and Lake Joy road, which is a multi-million dollar plan.
"We've invested a lot," Stalnaker says. "I think it's paying dividends now."
