Dougherty Co. industrial park construction expected soon

Posted: Updated:

Sewer work will begin soon at the newest industrial park project in Dougherty County.

Economic Development Commission leaders say they have high hopes for the park.

A $270,000 bid was awarded to build the sewer system at The Albany Dougherty Industrial Park off Sylvester Road adjacent to the former Cooper Tire Plant.

The 225 acre park has railroad access, and E.D.C. leaders say large, "shovel ready" sights like this are in demand.

"They want to be able to move into a park that's rail served.  Has infrastructure in the ground, and build a building that suits their needs and start operations in six months.  We are seeing a lot of prospects like that right now," said Albany Dougherty E.D.C. Vice President Justin Strickland.

The sewer system should be finished in six months.

The entire infrastructure at the park should be completed in the next year.
