LOCUST GROVE – The Georgia Department of Transportation has approved the location and design of a project that would widen a portion of Ga. Highway 42.
The project will widen the highway from Bill Gardner Parkway to Peeksville Road in Locust Grove, right in front of Locust Grove City Hall.
A proposed additional 11-foot southbound lane will transition into the through-lane from Cleveland Avenue south to the intersection of Ga. Highway 42 and Peeksville Road.
The existing southbound lane will transition to a left-turn drop lane at the intersection of Ga. Highway 42 and Peeksville Road. The project also contains curb and gutter with 5-foot sidewalks on the southbound side.
The project is located entirely in the city limits of Locust Grove.
Typically, maps or plats of projects would be available for public review at GDOT’s offices. However, due to current measures brought on by the coronavirus COVID-19, it may not be possible to access public buildings at this time. Anyone with questions or concerns about the project is asked to call or email Kraig Collins, the area engineer for the District 3/Area 1 office, at firstname.lastname@example.org, and at 706-646-7631.
Any interested party may obtain a copy of the drawings, maps or portions by paying a nominal fee and requesting in writing to:
