Columbia County says it will pave many dirt roads


Columbia County officials say they intend to pave dirt roads through rural communities despite the current economic crunch.

The officials say they will use a combination of county funds and a Community Development Block Grant -- federal funds disbursed by the state Department of Transportation. They say $750,000 has been allocated to pave six dirt roads.

Officials concerned about the faltering economy temporarily sacrificed some paving projects to help develop a $3.75 million road contingency fund.
