FLOWERY BRANCH -- Transportation officials are seeking the public's help in a project to improve a southern Hall County road.
The Georgia Department of Transportation and Hall County are hosting a public information open house meeting this week on the proposed widening of Spout Springs Road.
The informal session begins at 5 p.m. Thursday in the Narthex at Prince of Peace Catholic Church, located at 6439 Spout Springs Road in Flowery Branch. Officials encourage people to drop in to the meeting to discuss the proposal with Georgia DOT engineers, Hall County staff and consultants.
No formal presentation will be made at the meeting, which lasts until 7 p.m., and parking at the back of the church will be closest to the meeting room.
For those that cannot attend, plans can be viewed at the Georgia DOT district office at 2505 Athens Highway in Gainesville. They will also be available after the meeting at www.dot.ga.gov. On the home page choose "Information Center" then Public Outreach" and select the project's county and choose "Go." A list of active DOT projects in that county will appear. Select the project to view.
Hall County also has a website for project information www.improvespoutsprings.com
The DOT will accept public comments via fax at 404-377-9091 or email at Hansenemail@example.com. Comments also may be mailed to Glenn Bowman, State Environmental Administrator -- Georgia DOT, 600 West Peachtree St., 16th Floor, Atlanta, Ga. 30308.
To be considered in the project's final design, comments must be received by Dec. 21.
