The Georgia Department of Transportation invites the public to open houses to discuss the Statewide Transportation Improvement Plan (STIP).
STIP is a four-year program that specifies federally funded transportation projects for nonurban communities in rural Georgia for fiscal years 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. These projects include but are not limited to, new construction, improvements, and maintenance for interstates and state routes, and bridges. Additional projects include bicycle and pedestrian projects, transportation enhancement projects and public transit projects.
The Department will conduct two East Georgia open house meetings:
Monday, Sept. 14, 4 to 7 p.m., at Dublin Mall, and
Tuesday, Sept. 15, 4 to 7 p.m., at Milledgeville Mall.
Attendees will be able to view the Draft FY 10-13 STIP and maps of area projects, discuss projects with Georgia DOT staff, and submit comments on projects. All interested parties are encouraged to participate.
The public is invited to view projects planned for Glascock, Jefferson, Lincoln, McDuffie, Warren and Washington-Wilkes counties. Projects in other counties in this region that are part of a Metropolitan Planning Organization (areas with more than 50,000 population) will be available for public comment at a later date.
The Draft FY 10-13-STIP will also be available online at www.georgiastip.com.
