The Elbert County Public Works Department, in partnership with Douglas County Public Works, completed a joint project in mid-June that included new asphalt on Delbert Road from County Road 166/Singing Hills Rd to County Road 194/County Line Road.
Through an intergovernmental agreement, Elbert County maintains Delbert Road from County Road 166 to East Parker Road. Douglas County maintains the remainder of Delbert Road to County Road 194. The project contractor was Martin Marietta and the cost to complete the six-mile rehabilitation project was $1,321,885. Elbert County contributed $250,000 to the project.
The work completed was extremely well done and all field testing of the asphalt integrity has returned with great ratings. Elbert County was pleased to work with Douglas County on this project and Elbert County residents received a tremendous product at a great price.
