Right of Way Acquisition Little Neck Road

This is a project to rebuild the existing two lanes on Little Neck Road between U.S. 17/Ogeechee Road and the Landfill Entrance just northwest of I-95. The reconstruction will allow for a future four lane section between U.S. 17 and I-95 to be built at a later date. The current reconstruction project will include additional lanes between U.S. 17 and Al Henderson Boulevard with a raised center median and a path on each side. The path on the southeast side of the road will continue about one and a half miles from U.S. 17. The concept plans are provided here for your review. Construction is anticipated in 2022.

Final Design Quacco Road Improvement Project

This project will include roadway widening and operational improvements to intersections, drainage features, and pedestrian facilities along a 2.6-mile-long segment of Quacco Road beginning east of the existing Quacco Road bridge over I-95 and terminating at SR 25/US 17.  The roadway widening will consist of two 12-foot lanes with a 14-foot flush median along most of the corridor.  Four 12-foot lanes and an urban typical section will be used at the intersection along the SR 25/US 17 widening. Right-turn-lanes will also be added along the corridor to prevent queuing along Quacco Road.  Pedestrian facilities will be a large part of the improvements for this project. A 10-foot shared use path will be along the north side and a 5-foot sidewalk will be along the south side and will include bus terminals for the CAT bus route that currently services the area. The project will improve and address the signalized intersection at SR 25/US 17. Chatham County held a public information open house for this project on June 13, 2017.  Additional details can be found on the attached advertisement.

The project was split into two phases for constructon. Phase 1 included the improvements at the intersection of Quacco Roadand U.S. 17. Phase 1 improvements are complete.  Phase 2 will include the widening of Quacco Road between I-95 and the intersection with U.S. 17.  Staff expects clearing to begin for Phase 2 work in early 2022.

Active Road Resurfacing Program

Chatham County has over 300 miles of roads to maintain.  SPLOST law was changed with the enactment of Sales Tax V that allowed for the resurfacing of existing roadways.  The Department of Engineering (DOE) uses an efficient system for evaluating the condition of all roadways and allocating both SPLOST and Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant (LMIG) funds to the roads in the worst condition.  With this system the DOE is able to target roads that need the most attention and allocate funds efficiently.

Attached to your left you will find a list of roads to be paved with this years resurfacing program.
