The widening of Old Petersburg Road/Old Evans Road is set to begin next year.
The Georgia Department of Transportation’s Office of Transportation Investment Act announced two construction projects Wednesday, one of which is in Columbia County.
That project, estimated to cost $34 million, will widen and reconstruct three miles from Old Baston Road to Washington Road. It includes construction of two bridges and approaches over the CSX Railroad and Reed Creek. The estimated completion is spring 2017.
Historic Augusta is asking the public to unite at today’s meeting against the city’s plans to tear down an antebellum courthouse annex and weigh in on the “futuristic” design of a proposed new Information Technology building.
