Awarded: 06/30/2010

Applicant: Butts County

Equity grant funds will be used to assist with sewer infrastructure improvements to support the commercial development of an 80-acre site located at the intersection of I-75 and SR-16. The proposed project will benefit Great American Travel Center and a popular hotel chain, as well as provide increased capacity for future commercial growth and the creation of jobs. The proposed project lies within the I-75/SR-16 interchange approximately 10 miles west of the city of Jackson and requires the installation of 5,240 feet of 8-inch gravity sewer and a sewage pump station with 4,975 feet of 5-inch force main. The pump station capacity will be sized to provide the future projected wastewater needs of the Travel Center, hotel and the northeast and southeast quadrants of the Interchange. Great American Travel Center seeks to expand its operations to Butts County and will offer full services and amenities to highway motorists with a concept design that includes two well known restaurants. The private sector partner also plans to locate a well known hotel chain at this exit in Butts County.

Total Budgeted Project Cost: $7,921,920
