Public Information Open House (Hardy McManus Road Widening Project)
Columbia County Engineering Services Division To Hold a Location and Design Public Information Open House for the Widening of Hardy McManus Road from William Few Parkway to Furys Ferry Road (State Route 28)
On Thursday, March 28, 2019, the Columbia County Engineering Services Division will hold a Public Information Open House to present the concept to the citizens of Columbia County. The meeting will be held from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Riverside Elementary School, 4431 Hardy McManus Rd, Evans, GA.
Columbia County proposes to convert Hardy McManus Road from an existing two-lane roadway to a new multi-modal corridor with a 3-lane typical section as well as bicycle & pedestrian facilities. The bicycle & pedestrian facilities consist of a 5-foot sidewalk on the north side and a 12-foot multi-use trail on the south side. In addition to the new roadway section and pedestrian/bicycle facilities, the project proposes to install roundabouts at Dolphin Way, Aylesbury Drive, and a dual roundabout at the Halali Farm Road & Jamestown Avenue intersections. The project includes curb and gutter, upgraded railroad crossing, and new storm water management & treatment facilities. The length of the project is 3.1 miles.
The purpose of the Location and Design Public Information Open House is to provide the public with an opportunity to view the concept, ask questions of the county representatives and its engineers, and provide feedback.
It will be informal, and the public is invited to attend anytime during these hours. There will be no formal presentation. A court reporter will be available to allow the public an opportunity to make verbal comments about the project.
