CHIPLEY - Washington County is expected to submit 28 roads to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for repairs in coming weeks.

The project, which is expected to cost more than $1.5 million, will be paid for out of county funds, but is expected to be reimbursed by FEMA within less than a month of completion of each project.

County Engineer Cliff Knauer suggested officials stagger the projects as FEMA reimbursements come in to help make funding more manageable.

Roads slated for FEMA-funded repairs are: District 1 - Harcus Road, Island Hill Drive, King Road, Hammond Road, Bess Nook Road, Lee Road and Pipkin Road. District 2 - Laster Road, Worley Road, Cheverie Road, Hartzog Road, Coon Hollow Road, and Dottie West Road. District 3 - Metcalf Road, Morrell Avenue, Oma Road, Trailblazer Lane, Keenkutter Boulevard, Ferguson Road, Ebenezer Road, and Potter Springs Road. District 4 - Rudd Road, Vickery Road, Cypress Creek Road, Gilbert Mill Road, Pike Pond Road, and Kent Road.

Greenhead Road, which is about seven miles long, is the only road slated for repair in District 5, but the project also includes funding to repair three retention ponds.

The list is expected to be submitted to FEMA next week, with beginning in coming weeks.
