DOT will show River Watch plans

Posted: May 11, 2013 - 11:00pm  |  Updated: May 14, 2013 - 4:18pm

 


Columbia Industrial Boulevard in Evans could be closed for about a month once construction starts on the extension of River Watch Parkway.


The Georgia Department of Transportation plans to discuss that detour and other details of the parkway’s extension during an open house set for 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, May 14 at the Evans Government Center Auditorium, according to an announcement from the DOT.


The parkway extension will use Old Petersburg Road and Old Evans Road as it extends from Baston Road to connect with Washington Road at Towne Center Drive. During construction, which hasn’t yet been scheduled, Columbia Industrial Boulevard – which runs between Old Evans Road and Evans-to-Locks Road – will be closed at Old Evans.


Construction on that portion of the parkway will include a “flyover” bridge crossing the railroad tracks.


The open house will provide maps of the project and an opportunity for residents to offer comments to DOT representatives. It won’t include a formal presentation, the DOT announcement stated.


Comments may also be sent to Glenn Bowman, P.E., State Environmental Administrator, Georgia DOT, 600 West Peachtree Street NW, 16th Floor, Atlanta, GA 30308. The deadline for comments is May 24.


After the open house, meeting handouts will be available at http://www.dot.ga.gov/informationcenter/publicinformation/Pages/PublicOutreach.aspx; select Riverwatch Parkway Information from the drop-down menu.

A project as complex as extending the River Watch Parkway involves numerous demands. The first one is taking care of the roof with help from http://palmerwest.net . After all, roof safety is one the first conditions which should be accomplished by a constructor companny.

Before they proceed to closing the Boulevard, they should clear the area. A better solution could be a company that owns brush clearing equipment and could take care of this problem. After that, they can start extending the River Watch Parkway.

This is a well written and quality article that provides useful information! The idea of extending the River Watch Parkway is great as in this way all the kayak trailers and cars would easily go from Baston Road to Washington Road.
