An open house designed to obtain input from citizens on transportation improvements along four roadway corridors across Fayette County will be held March 18 at the Fayette County Library in Fayetteville.

Sponsored by Fayette County Public Works and Croy Engineering, the open house will discuss transportation improvements for the Sandy Creek Road, Tyrone Road-Palmetto Road, Banks Road and Ga. Highway 279 corridors.

The meeting will be held March 18 from 4-7 p.m. at the Fayette County Public Library, located at 1821 Heritage Parkway in downtown Fayetteville. Drop-ins are encouraged.

With continued growth in the region, Fayette County has started the process to identify current and future concerns for providing safe and efficient movement along these corridors. Input received from the public will be used to develop alternative 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, county officials said.

“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,” said Fayette County Public Works Director Phil Mallon.

Information provided 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.
