The Henry County government and the Georgia Department of Transportation will hold a pre-acquisition meeting next Tuesday for the widening of Rock Quarry Road in Stockbridge.

McDONOUGH – The Henry County government and the Georgia Department of Transportation will hold a pre-acquisition meeting for the widening of Rock Quarry Road in Stockbridge.

The meeting will be held Tuesday, June 30 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Henry County Administration Building in McDonough. The meeting will be held in Conference Room B of the facility, which is located at 140 Henry Pkwy. in McDonough.

The meeting is intended to familiarize property owners and other individuals that may have an interest in the properties required for the proposed project.

Right of way plans will be available for review, and attendees will have the opportunity to speak with county staff and GDOT representatives.

The proposed project will widen Rock Quarry Road from Eagles Landing Parkway north to Ga. Highway 42 and Ga. Highway 138. According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, the project is 2.6 miles in length.

Right of way acquisition, according to GDOT’s website, has a $7.171 million price tag, and would be used to acquire properties that would stand in the way of construction of the road.

Currently, the road is classified as an “urban minor arterial” two-lane highway that features “a large number of commercial and industrial businesses along the proposed project segment.”

One of those businesses along Rock Quarry Road is Piedmont Henry Hospital, located on the corner of Eagles Landing Parkway and Rock Quarry Road.
