USAID To Build 100km Roads In Lofa County

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

MONROVIA, April 7 (LINA) - The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has agreed to construct a total of 100 kilometers of roads in Lofa County.

This was disclosed by Lofa County Senior Senator Sumo Kupee when he addressed a cross-section of citizens Sunday in Old Matadi in Monrovia hailing from Hembeh and Kolahun District in Lofa County.

He said 68 kilometers of road will be constructed in Hembeh Clan in Kolahun District, while a 25 kilometer will cover Johns Town and Tusue in Zorzor District, adding that the remaining seven kilometers will be directed to other parts of the county.

Kupee said the USAID project will bring relief to government, county officials and the general population, noting “we have been in continuous pursuit of how we can get these roads constructed.”

Senator Kupee did not disclose the cost of the project, but said technical details of the project are being worked out, while technicians from the Public Works Ministry and USAID have begun assessments and modalities leading to the commencement of the project.

He said construction of the road, which connects Hembeh to Lower Bomi County through Gbarpolu County “is long overdue as it makes sense to travel from right behind Gbarpolu County, which is shorter to Monrovia.

Currently, people leaving Hembeh will have to travel to Kolahun, then to Voinjama and Gbarnga before heading to Monrovia.

Following the disclosure, Pastor Daniel Kollie, Chairman of the Hembeh Clan Development Association, Momo Siafa Kpoto and former Star Radio Producer Momolu Vannie, thanked USAID and promised to work along in the implementation of the project.
