The city of Canton has received money to help them make repairs on its roads.

Georgia Department of Transportation officials recently approved awarding the city a little more than $260,000 in Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant funding to resurface and stripe two streets and repair signal loops at several intersections. 

Canton can use the funding to cover a mile of resurfacing and striping on East Main Street between Brown Street and the bus entrance of Hasty Elementary School and on North Street between the Cherokee County Historic Courthouse and Brown Street. 

The funding also allows the city to repair the signal loops at the intersection of Ball Ground Highway at Keith Drive, Prominence Point Parkway at Marietta Highway, Bells Ferry Road at Marietta Highway and Brown Industrial Parkway at East Main Street. 

LMIG funds can only be used on improvements for roads and bridges within county, city or state rights-of-way. Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, safety, economic development, sidewalk, maintenance and bridge repairs.
