GA DOT Reveals Plans to Replace Bridge Over Troublesom Creek in Spalding County

A public information meeting to discuss the Georgia DOT’s proposed plans to replace the bridge located on CR 508/Jordan Hill Road over Troublesome Creek in Spalding County is scheduled for Thursday, June 11, from 5 to 7 p.m.

This open house format meeting will be held at Jordan Hill Elementary School, located at 75 Jordan Hill Road, Griffin, Ga. There will be no formal presentation.

Any residents interested in learning more about the proposed project and detour are encouraged to attend the meeting and express their thoughts and concerns.

"We are eager to hear the viewpoints and concerns of all area residents," said Thomas Howell, Georgia DOT district engineer in Thomaston. "The Georgia DOT encourages all interested parties to provide their inputs for this project."

“Public involvement is a critical element in the Georgia DOT road planning process and it can make a big difference in the development of projects,” explained Howell. “The Georgia DOT strongly believes that since its road projects are intended to serve the people, the ideas and preferences of these people are important.”
