The Walker County Board of Commissioners recently adopted a list of roads to resurface in 2023. The list contains roughly 35-miles of roads, including Halls Valley Road, Straight Gut Road, Old Mineral Springs Road and Salem Road.

Bids are currently being accepted by contractors for work on the 41 roads later this year. Funding for these projects will exhaust the $6,000,000 set aside in the 2020 SPLOST.

The county has also used TSPLOST funds in the past to improve local roads. The remainder of the TSPLOST funds were previously allocated for road work along Dougherty Gap Road and West Cove Road. A contractor recently milled Dougherty Gap and will be resurfacing both roads this spring. TSPLOST sunset last fall after voters elected not to renew this special purpose local option sales tax.
