Fayette County government seeks input from residents on four transportation corridor studies


Members of the public are invited to an information open house to discuss transportation improvement draft concepts for the Sandy Creek Road, Tyrone Road-Palmetto Road, Banks Road, and SR 279 corridors on Monday, July 15, from 4-7 p.m.

The meeting will be held at the Fayette County Public Library, 1821 Heritage Park Way in Fayetteville.

With continued growth in the region, Fayette County had initiated the process to identify current and future concerns for providing safe and efficient movement along these corridors. Input received from stakeholders and the public were used to develop draft concepts to facilitate transportation improvements that address existing and projected conditions with the goal of enhancing safety; reducing congestion and delay; facilitating multi-modal usage; and supporting economic development.

“Corridor studies of this nature help Fayette County plan for and construct the appropriate types of improvements to support the varied travel needs of our citizens and business owners. The more public input we receive the better job we can do in providing the desired transportation system,” says Phil Mallon, Fayette County’s Public Works Director.

The open house will be informal and everyone is invited to stop by anytime between 4 pm and 7 pm with plenty of parking available at the Fayette County Public Library. Draft concepts displayed at the meeting, as well as a survey for each corridor, will be posted on the Fayette County Transportation Planning Webpage (https://www.fayettecountyga.gov/transportation-planning/index.htm). In addition, comment forms will be available at the meeting and online.

For additional information contact Phil Mallon, Fayette County Public Works (770) 320-6010 or Dan Dobry, Croy Engineering (consultant), (770) 971-5401.
