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; select Riverwatch Parkway Information from the drop-down menu.

For big construction projects

For big construction projects like this the community has to be prepared to face minor inconveniences. However, now accessing any kind of construction material has become simpler online. Not just that but if you need items like steel carports you can also find that online at

Often big construction projects could drag on for a long time, so the community has to be ready to face some inconveniences. However, such construction works could be messy, so it would be better to approach companies which offer day labor ga and in other areas to clean up the mess.

If the residents face much

If the residents face much inconvenience during this one month period then they should consider moving to some rented place. But moving to another place is not a cakewalk, so they have to appoint skilled Virginia Beach movers.

The construction work here

The construction work here should not take up much time but often due to certain weather conditions such projects get delayed. These days most construction materials could be found online, along with exclusive items like vacuum pump oils.

Well, it is a good thing that the authorities have decided to extend the parkway and it would be a great place for evening strolls. Having such a place within the town limits is very necessary, I think.
