Governor Sonny Perdue has given final clearance for three Georgia transportation projects funded by over $8 million in federal stimulus money.

The projects certified Friday include more than $4.2 million for bridges on State Road 7/U.S. 41 at Giddens Mill Creek in Cook County. Also approved are intersection improvements at Strickland Street and Old Alma Road in Pierce County and State Roads 18/109 at 74 in Pike County.

Perdue said in a press release that the money obtained through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act improves the state's transportation while putting Georgians to work.

The projects are expected to begin sometime this fall.
