ATLANTA (AP) — The Georgia Department of Transportation has awarded $31 million in contracts for new road projects across the state.

An agency news release says the largest of the 20 new contracts is worth nearly $6 million. That money will be used to build a bridge where State Route 66 crosses Brasstown Creek in Towns County near the Georgia-North Carolina state line.

The DOT says nearly half the $31 million total is going to six contracts for road resurfacing. The largest is $4.7 million awarded to repave more than 11 miles (17.7 kilometers) of State Route 12 in DeKalb County.

The DOT says it has spent $112 million on road construction projects so far in the 2020 fiscal year that began July 1.
