ATLANTA - The State Department of Transportation is getting ready to widen State Route 347 - better known as Lanier Islands Parkway - between McEver Road and Lake Lanier Islands. First, though, planners say they want some public input on the plan, so they will hold a public meeting Thursday, October 10.

According to a statement from GDOT officials, the proposal would widen State Route 347, building a 14-foot, two-way left turn lane or continuous center turning lane between McEver Road and Lake Lanier Islands and constructing right turn lanes as needed at intersecting roads. The SR 347 and New Bethany Road intersection would be reconfigured and relocated north of its existing location as a roundabout. The plan includes a 10-foot multi-use path and a five foot sidewalk, as well.

The open house meeting is scheduled from 5 - 7 p.m. on October 10 at the Lanier Islands Community Church located at 6302 Lanier Islands Parkway in Buford. Georgia DOT Engineers and consultants will be available to discuss the proposal. There will not be a formal presentation during the open house.

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 October 24.

After the open house meetings, plans and handouts can be viewed at the Georgia DOT Area Office located at 2594 Gillsville Highway in Gainesville. Project information will be available on the DOT website after the open house meetings at www.dot.ga.gov.
