Public Hearing
The Georgia Department
of Transportation to Hold
a Location and Design
Public Hearing for
Project STP-002-6(52)(53)
Clarke and Jackson Counties
P.I. Nos. 122170, 122160
On November 15, 1999, the Georgia Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing concerning the proposed Location and Design of Project STP-002-6(52)(53), Clarke and Jackson Counties. The hearing will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the gymnasium of South Jackson Elementary School located at 8144 Jefferson Hwy., Athens, Georgia 30607.
Project STP-002-6(52)(53), Clarke and Jackson Counties, consists of the widening and reconstruction of US 129/SR 15 from SR 330/Lavender Road in Clarke County to the proposed Jefferson Bypass near CR 104 in Jackson County. The proposed project would widen the existing roadway from two lanes to four lanes separated by a 44-foot median.
The proposed widening would begin on the west side of US 129/SR 15 at the end of the existing four lane section of SR 330/Lavender Road and proceed to a point just north of CR 116/Fuller Road. From this point, the widening would cross over to the east side for approximately 0.68 mile to a point just north of CR 119. From there, the widening would shift to the west side and continue to the northern terminus of the project near CR 104.
The typical section for the project would be a rural section (open ditch) consisting of four 12-foot lanes separated by a 44-foot grass median with 10-foot shoulders and a 200 foot right-of-way. The existing roadway is two lanes with a right-of-way which varies from 80 feet to 100 feet. From Brock Road to Crooked Creek Road, the grassed median has been reduced to 32 feet on 150 foot of right-of-way to avoid a historic resource, the Segars-Smith House, and to avoid an elementary school. The total project length is 10.4 miles.
Representatives from the Department of Transportation will be available from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. with plans and displays. The public will have an opportunity to attend the hearing at its convenience to ask questions and discuss the project with a Department representative. Relocation assistance will be discussed at the hearing. There will be no formal presentation.
A court reporter will be available during this time to allow the public an opportunity to make comments about the project. These comments will be included in the transcript of the hearing.
Written statements may be submitted to: Mr. David E. Studstill, P.E., State Environmental/Location Engineer, 3993 Aviation Circle, Atlanta, Georgia 30336-1593
Written statements should be sent by November 29, 1999. The displays at the public hearing will be available for ten days for review after the public hearing at the office of the Area Engineer at 450 Old Hull Road, Athens, GA 30601.
Also, as soon as the transcript is prepared, it will be available at this location.
The environmental document will be available for review 15 days before the date of the public hearing at the location stated above. Also copies of the environmental document will be available at the hearing for public review.
Copies of the environmental document are available to the public by sending your request to Mr. David Studstill at the address listed above.
