Ga. DOT Welcomes Public Comment on Improvement Program

 

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GA DOT) will be presenting the Draft FY 2012 - 2015 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for public review and comment. 

The STIP is a four-year program that specifies federally funded transportation projects for non-urban communities in rural Georgia for Fiscal Years 2012, 2013 2014 and 2015.  These projects include, but are not limited to, new construction, improvements, and maintenance for interstates and state routes, and bridges.  Additional projects include bicycle and pedestrian projects, transportation enhancement projects and public transit projects.

The Tennille District Office will sponsor two Open House meetings where the public can view the Draft FY 12-15 STIP, view maps of  projects in the local area, discuss projects with GA DOT staff, and formally offer comments.  The meetings are open to the public and all constituents are encouraged and welcome to attend.

A meeting will be held Wednesday, August 24, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Dublin Mall

Another meeting takes place Tuesday, August 30, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Milledgeville Mall.

 

The general public is invited to view projects planned for Baldwin, Bleckley, Burke, Columbia, Dodge, Emanuel, Greene, Hancock, Jasper, Jefferson, Jenkins, Johnson, Laurens, Lincoln, McDuffie, Morgan, Newton, Oglethorpe, Putnam, Screven, Treutlen, Warren, Washington, Wilkes, and Wilkinson Counties.  Projects for other counties in this region that are part of a Metropolitan Planning Organization (areas with more than 50,000 in population) will be available for public comment in a separate meeting, at a later date.

 

The Draft FY 12-15 STIP will also be available on the internet at www.georgiastip.com.  The Department looks forward to working with the public during the development of the Draft FY 12-15 STIP.
