McDuffie County will begin repairing and resurfacing roads when it receives its 2013 Land Maintenance Improvement Grant in January.
McDuffie is to receive a $307, 494.21 grant and match it by 10 percent for road improvements beginning with Mt. Pleasant and Mesena roads.
The LMIG, or Land Maintenance Improvement Grant Program, is a “match” that local governments have to pay to do projects. It is a combination of the former Local Assistance Road Program, which helped local governments with repaving roads, and the state aid program.
