Come See and Comment on the Proposed Project for the Walnut Creek Bridge Replacement in Henry County

Thomaston, Ga. – The Georgia DOT announces a Public Information Open House to discuss the proposed Walnut Creek bridge replacement on County Road 131 in Henry County.

The public is encouraged to come out to view the details of the proposed project and discuss the options available with Georgia DOT staff and give comments. The public meeting is scheduled for Thursday, January 21 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at East Lake Elementary School located at 199 East Lake Road, McDonough, GA 30252. There will be no formal presentation, so interested participants may stop by at any point during the meeting.

This project proposes to replace the existing 2-lane bridge on County Road 131 over Walnut Creek. Located approximately ½ mile northeast of the City of McDonough, the proposed replacement would be constructed at the same location and tie into roadway improvements made at the road approaches.

Anyone unable to attend the public open house may send comments on the project to Hiral Patel, State Environmental Administrator – Georgia DOT, 600 West Peachtree Street-NW, 16th Floor, Atlanta, Georgia 30308.  All comments will be considered in the development of the final project design and must be received by Monday, February 1.

After the open house meeting, plans and handouts will be available for viewing for 10 days at the Georgia DOT District 3, Area 1 office located at 101 Transportation Blvd, Thomaston, GA 31286. The plans will also be available on the DOT website after the open house meetings at www.dot.ga.gov.  On the home page, click on PartnerSmart, then Public/Media Center and then Public Outreach.
