GDOT seeks public input on road projects

TENNILLE — An open forum will be held next week for public input on federally funded road projects. 

The Georgia Department of Transportation will present a draft of its Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) plans in for public review and comment. One forum will be held in Milledgeville — from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday at the Milledgeville Mall. A second forum will be held Tuesday, Oct. 29 in Dublin. 

The meetings are open to the public and all constituents are encouraged and welcome to attend. Those who attend will have an opportunity to view maps of projects in the area and discuss projects with GDOT staff and offer comments. 

The STIP is a four-year program designed to achieve Georgia’s transportation goals as envisioned by the Governor and State Transportation Board to improve the mobility of people and movement of goods across the state, expand Georgia’s role in global commerce, reduce injury and loss of life on state roadways, and prioritize investments in Georgia’s transportation infrastructure assets. 

The pending STIP will specify federally funded transportation projects for non-urban communities in rural Georgia for Fiscal Years 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. These projects include, but are not limited to, new construction, improvements and maintenance for interstate highways, state routes and bridges. Additional projects include bicycle and pedestrian projects, transportation enhancement projects and public transit projects.

The general public is invited to view projects planned for Baldwin, Bleckley, Burke, Dodge, Emanuel, Glascock, Greene, Hancock, Jasper, Jefferson, Jenkins, Johnson, Laurens, Lincoln, McDuffie, Morgan, Oglethorpe, Putnam, Screven, Taliaferro, Treutlen, Warren, Washington, Wilkes and Wilkinson counties.

The Draft FY 14-17 STIP will also be available at www.dot.ga.gov/stip.
