Georgia DOT Seeking Public Input on Federally Funded Projects

October 22, 2013

The Georgia Department of Transportation is seeking public review and comment on its federally-funded projects.

Georgia DOT is presenting the draft FY 2014-2017 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program in Northeast Georgia for public review and comment.

The STIP is a four year program designed to achieve Georgia’s transportation goals to improve the mobility of people and movement of goods across the state, expand Georgia’s role in global commerce, and reduce injury and loss of life on Georgia highways.

Some of these projects include, but are not limited to, new construction, improvements and maintenance for interstate highways, state routes, and bridges.

Two open house meetings will be held, the first of which is this Thursday from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at Helen City Hall in Helen, GA; the next meeting falls on the following Tuesday at the Jefferson Civic Center and Clubhouse in Jefferson, GA, that meeting will be held at the same time as the previous one.

Northeast Georgia counties included in the STIP include Elbert, Franklin, Hart, Banks, Stephens, and Jackson counties among others.
