Veterans Parkway is open all the way


It has been years in the making, but the smiles on all the faces were for the opening of the entire 6-mile span of Veterans Parkway from Ga. Highway 54 to Ga. Highway 92 North officially opened on July 26. The ribbon-cutting was held a short distance from Hwy. 92 North.
