TIFTON, Ga. – Georgia Department of Transportation representatives will hold an informal public information open house April 29 to discuss a temporary detour route needed while improvements are made to the intersection of U.S. 319/state Route 35 at Indian Lake Drive in Colquitt County.
The proposed project will add left and right turn lanes at Indian Lake Drive and a right turn lane at the existing driveway for Haven Hill Estates. Construction will require closing U.S. 319/SR 35 to through traffic for a maximum of five days.
The open house will be held from 4-6 p.m. at the Georgia Baptist Conference Center, 4243 U.S. 319, Norman Park. Georgia DOT representatives will be available to discuss the detour route and answer questions. There will not be a formal presentation.
Those attending may give a verbal statement about the proposed detour and/or complete a comment card. Anyone unable to attend the open house may submit a written comment to:
Ms. Hiral Patel, P.E.
State Environmental Administrator
