When Fort Gordon needs roadwork performed, a new contract now allows Columbia County, Ga., to help pave the way.

The county and the U.S. Army installation, based southwest of Augusta, signed an intergovernmental support agreement Oct. 20 that allows the county to procure “maintenance supplies and services” for the upkeep of the fort’s 173 mi. of roadways.

“Fort Gordon is very excited about this,” Col. Shaw Pick, the fort’s garrison commander, said to the Augusta Chronicle. “This is our first significant IGSA [Intergovernmental Support Agreement] that’s going to help the Columbia County team, but more so the American taxpayer.
