Carter acquires funding for SR 38 bypass in Liberty County

LIBERTY COUNTY – Rep. Earl L. “Buddy” Carter (R-GA) secured $2.71 million for the Georgia Department of Transportation to reduce traffic between the City of Savannah and Liberty County as part of the Fiscal Year 2024 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act.

The funding will support the Liberty County SR 38 Bypass project, constructing a two-lane, new construction roadway south of Walthourville in Liberty County.

“This bypass will significantly reduce traffic in Liberty County, which is a major concern for residents. I am proud to represent a district that is continuing to grow and attract economic development projects, and this funding will ensure that our roads can support the increased demand,”
said Rep. Carter.

“I commend our local, state and federal partners in their efforts to make this much needed and soon to be celebrated infrastructure improvement in Liberty County. Its completion will greatly benefit the move of traffic around Hinesville. Especially as we accommodate the influx of commercial projects who covet locations on our major thoroughfare, Highway 84,”
said Donald Lovette, Liberty County Commission Chairman.

Liberty County Administrator Joey Brown
expressed appreciation for the hard work of Representative Carter along with Senators Warnock and Ossoff in helping to accomplish funding for this vital infrastructure project. “Once complete, the roadway will enhance the movement of freight and passenger traffic in the region,” said Brown.
