  • County government update: Road Dept.

    This week I will highlight Henry County’s roads and a few of the projects that are in the works.

    With well over 200 miles of roads in the county system, there is always work to be done.

    This year’s budget allowed for resurfacing on 17 different roads for a total of 4,150 tons of blacktop laid at a cost of around $275,000. These funds come from taxes on gasoline that we all pay at the pump. The state collects these dollars and remits them based on a formula to each county.
