Public review, comment sought on federally-funded projects in NE Ga.

By Staff
GAINESVILLE. The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is about ready to hear from the public on the FY 2014-2017 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for Northeast Georgia.

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 Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) Office in Gainesville will sponsor two Open House meetings over the next two weeks at which the public can view the Draft FY 2014-2017 STIP in Northeast Georgia, view maps of projects in the local area, discuss projects with GDOT staff, and formally offer comments:


Thursday, October 24

5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Helen City Hall

25 Alpenrosen Strasse

Helen


Tuesday, October 29

5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Jefferson Civic Center and Clubhouse

65 Kissam Street

Jefferson



The general public is invited to view projects planned for counties that are not designated as  metropolitan. These Northeast Georgia counties are included in the STIP: Banks, Dawson, Elbert, Franklin, Habersham, Hart, Jackson, Lumpkin, Rabun, Stephens, Towns, Union and White. Projects for other counties in this region that are part of a Metropolitan Planning Organization (areas with more than 50,000 in population) will be available for public comment in a separate meeting, at a later date.


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