Comments on proposed widening of Ga. 347 still being accepted
By Ken Stanford Staff
GAINESVILLE - People unable to attend a GDOT-sponsored meeting Thursday night on the planned widening of Georgia 347 in South Hall still have time to comment.
The project involves the section of road from McEver Road to Lake Lanier Islands. 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.
Comments on the project can be sent 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.
Plans and handouts can be viewed at the Georgia DOT Area Office located at 2594 Gillsville Highway in Gainesville. Project information is available on the DOT website at www.dot.ga.gov. On the home page choose “Information Center” then Public Outreach” and select the project’s county (Hall) and choose “Go.” A list of active DOT projects in that county will appear.
