GDOT public meetings to discuss interstate system

| Thursday, September 18, 2003

The Georgia Department of Transportation has planned three public open-house meetings to discuss the Georgia Interstate Plan, a 30-year plan for Georgia’s interstate system.

Each meeting will be held in a different section of the state – one each in Carterville, Brunswick and Macon, GA – in late September and early October.

The public meetings are part of the process to develop the Georgia Interstate Plan, a study evaluating how well the statewide interstate system meets the needs of its users now and through 2035. Georgia residents will be asked to comment on the efficiency of travel, delivery of goods in their community, roadway safety and traffic congestion as they relate to the interstate system.

The Carterville meeting is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 25, at the GDOT District Office, 500 Joe Frank Harris Parkway (U.S. 41 south of Carterville).

The Brunswick meeting will be 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 30, at the Coastal Georgia RDC at 127 F Street.

The Macon meeting is slated for 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 6, at the GDOT Area Office at 4499 Riverside Drive.
