Do you know how to use a roundabout? Georgia currently has 85 in operation and about 210 in development so we thought we'd share how they work. Do you have any questions about roundabouts you'd like answered?

Thank you to The Moultrie Observer and reporter Kasmira Smith for telling the South Georgia Gives story! When a reporter reaches out without a pitch, it really solidifies the fact that what you are doing is purposeful. Excited to grow alongside this movement πŸ™Œ



We love being able to support CURE Childhood Cancer and bring awareness every year with Elves Night Out. Such a fitting way to kick off the Christmas season! Thank you The Moultrie Observer for the lovely article.
Great article from The Moultrie Observer about Southeast Bulloch High School science teacher and cross country coach Laurie Pitts. Her hometown paper chronicled her cross country career from her time as a young high school runner at Colquitt County High School to her success at SEBHS, where her boys and girls teams just claimed first- and third-place respectively at the Region 3-AAAA Cross Country meet this week. Team members Skyler Myers also claimed top overall female and Trey Sirmans was second overall male runner. Congratulations Coach Pitts and the SEBHS Yellow Jackets.
Someone recently asked on another GDOT page about plans for the intersection of SR 37 and Thigpen Trail in Colquitt County. A single-lane roundabout is programmed for that intersection. It is in the preliminary engineering phase and right now bids for construction are expected to be received in fiscal year 2026. Keep in mind projected dates are subject to change. Here is the link to the project page, which will be updated as the project progresses:

Great photos of a recent deck pour for another span of the new Ochlockonee River bridge in Colquitt County, part of the SR 133 widening/reconstruction. This is the section that runs from south of US 319/SR 35 to Mike Horne Road, a little under 14 miles. It's about 30% complete and currently is expected to wrap up at the end of next year.

Hey Moultrie! We ❀️ you!

Thanks to The Moultrie Observer for sharing our story, and to Colquitt County clients Select Moultrie - MCC Development Authority & Colquitt County Educational Foundation for trusting us with your brand πŸ™

The Moultrie / Colquitt County community has embraced me and my work in a β€œnext level” kind of way, so I can’t post this without a big shout out also to my friends at Southern Regional Technical College, Sunbelt Ag Expo, Colquitt County School District, United Way of Colquitt County, and the Moultrie-Colquitt County Chamber of Commerce, and specifically my β€œMoultrie mentors” Barbara Grogan, Anna Ford & Jim Glass πŸŽ‰



Check out this excellent video of the recent deck pour on the SR 133 southbound Okapilco Creek bridge under construction in Colquitt County. This video is from our own Courtney Peugh. The bridge construction is part of the SR 133 widening/reconstruction project from south of US 319/SR 35 to Mike Horne Road. Great job, Courtney!

Appreciate the The Moultrie Observer covering the race for School Board! I'm enjoying the opportunity to hear directly from our friends and neighbors. Our kids' futures are too important to sit on the sidelines.

Did you miss us? You may not be aware, but each of the seven GDOT districts has its own page and Twitter account. Last week Facebook locked us all out of our pages. Kudos to our social media folks in the Atlanta office for getting us back online! How about a recent video of setting bridge beams on the new Okapilco Creek bridge on SR 133 in Colquitt County? This will carry southbound traffic once SR 133 has been widened. Did you know that each beam is designated to go into a specific spot? It is quite an operation to see, from the crane operators who pick up and swing these massive beams to the correct location and the people on the ground who make sure each beam fits on the pin and black, rectangular bearing pad.
