The Georgia Department of Transportation announces a public information open house meeting to discuss the placement of a roundabout on SR 3/US 19 in Upson County.
The Open House is scheduled from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 4 at the Georgia Department of Transportation District 3 offices located at 115 Transportation Blvd. in Auditorium “C”. Georgia DOT engineers and consultants will be available to discuss the proposal. There will not be a formal presentation during the open house.
The project proposes to widen and reconstruct SR 3/US 19 from East-West County Road to Atwater Road in Thomaston. The proposed project would include the realignment of Delray Road to intersect SR 3/US 19 at Jimmerson Road and construct a roundabout at this new intersection.
Anyone unable to attend the public information open house may send comments on the project to Glenn Bowman, State Environmental Administrator – Georgia DOT, 600 West Peachtree Street, 16th Floor, Atlanta, Georgia 30308. All comments will be considered in the development of the final project design and must be received by December 18.
After the open house meetings, plans and handouts can be viewed at the Georgia DOT Area Office located at 101 Transportation Blvd., Thomaston, GA.
The plans will be available on the DOT website after the open house meetings at www.dot.ga.gov. On the home page choose “Information Center” then Public Outreach” and select the project’s county and choose “Go.” A list of active DOT projects in that county will appear. Select the project to view.
