GDOT unveils proposal to make portion of Cleveland Hwy. a divided roadway

By Staff
ATLANTA - State transportation officials have plans to widen Cleveland Highway (SR 11/US 129) north of Gainesville, and they want area residents to take a look at their proposal next week.

The proposal calls for the widening of the highway from Limestone Parkway to Nopone Road.

The proposal would widen Cleveland Highway to a four-lane divided highway following the existing roadway from Limestone Parkway to Bivins Road; this section would include sidewalks and a raised concrete median. Just north of Bivins Road, the proposed design leaves the existing roadway to straighten out curves and flatten hills and valleys in the existing roadway. This new location section of road features a depressed grassy median.

In addition, the project includes building new bridges over the Chattahoochee River portion of Lake Lanier and over the East Fork of the Little River portion of Lake Lanier.

An open house meeting is scheduled from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, February 27 at the North Hall High School gymnasium on Mount Vernon Road. There will not be a formal presentation during the open house, but GDOT engineers and consultants will be available to discuss the proposal with attendees.

Anyone unable to attend the public information open house may send comments on the project to Glenn Bowman, State Environmental Administrator
