This project will make improvements to Garrard Avenue and Lane Avenue between Chatham Parkway and Gamble Road. The project will be funded with local SPLOST funds and federal funds. The purpose of the project is to improve safety and connectivity for all road users along the corridor. Our consultants will be looking at traffic, environmental features and performing survey in the first half of 2022. Then we will consider what safety, operational and pedestrian improvements will work best. Drainage, lighting, water quality and traffic calming will also be considered. Once we have some ideas, stakeholder meetings and a public information open house will be held for input to refine the concept plan. Those meetings will likely be in the second half of 2022. The overall schedule includes design of construction plans in 2023 based on the finalized concept plan, right of way acquisition in 2024 and construction in 2025.
