SPLOST for Infrastructure

"Infrastructure" is a broad term that encompasses the physical components of a community that make modern life and society possible.  Typically, infrastructure refers to roads, bridges, water delivery systems, sewer systems, storm water systems, and electrical grids, but has been expanded in recent years to include telecommunications and even green spaces.

Augusta, like most cities, has an infrastructure with various features that range in  age, capability, and condition.  Maintenance of existing infrastructure and the creation of new infrastructure to sustain the population and support the growth of the community is a challenge.  All phases of SPLOST, since its inception, have been utilized to provide Augusta with a funding source to manage the city's complex and wide-ranging infrastructure.
The list below features several significant infrastructure projects that have been funded through SPLOST.  The list below is a sampling of projects - it is not an all-inclusive list of the hundreds of infrastructure-related SPLOST projects that have taken place.
