Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. R. 672-12-.11 - Local Road Assistance Program

(1) Scope and Purpose. To provide capital assistance for each Local Government (County/City) to maintain through resurfacing the roads and streets within their respective transportation system.
(2) Terms and Conditions. Each Local Government must submit a priority list of desired projects they wish to have considered for the Local Road Assistance Program ("LARP"). The priority list is evaluated by the Department of transportation's engineers based on a needs assessment and cost estimates for the project. The Department of Transportation's engineers make recommendations to the Commissioner of Transportation. Funds for this program are distributed by Board formula among the Congressional Districts and are equitably apportioned among urban and rural areas. Eligible priorities must meet acceptable needs evaluation and funding must be available prior to approval under this Program. No funds from this Program may be utilized to relocate utilities or perform work outside of the existing pavements. Private property or lease property does not qualify for assistance.
(3) Eligible Recipients. All Counties and Cities within the State are eligible.
(4) Criteria for Award. Priorities that are located on the County or City road and street system are eligible for consideration. Resurfacing contracts are issued at the discretion of the Commissioner based upon needs assessments and available funds.
(5) Directions and Deadlines. Priority lists are requested from each County and City of roads and streets to be considered. Projects are selected from the priority list and contracts are prepared by the Department of Transportation and let for competitive bidding. Completion dates are established that will allow for the completion of the work during the current paving season after the contract is let. Many Counties and Cities request their LARP contracts to be negotiated in the form of County/City contracts. These contracts do not have a completion date assigned; however the Local Governments are encouraged to complete the project during the same paving season.

All contracts are engineered and supervised by Department of Transportation engineers, following current guidelines and specifications for construction.
