The Georgia Department of Transportation has planned a public information open house for Tuesday, February 26th to discuss the proposed project to offer a new connection between US 411 and I-75 in Bartow County.  According to a GDOT media release, the gathering will take place from 5 pm until 7 pm at Faith United Methodist Church, 501 Grassdale Road in Cartersville.

Residents of Floyd and Bartow County interested in learning more about the project are encouraged to attend and express their preferences. 

The plans call for the construction of a new Rome-Cartersville Development Corridor (RCDC) to connect US 411 and I-75 to provide improved mobility for commuters, residents and freight movement throughout Floyd and Bartow Counties.  It is intended to relieve congestion along the existing US411/SR20 to I-75 corridor, among other objectives.

District engineer Grant Waldrop from the GDOT office in Cartersville says, “The Georgia DOT strongly believes that since the RCDC proposed project is intended to serve the people of Bartow and Floyd Counties, the ideas and preferences of these people are important and can make a difference in our planning process.”

Accommodations for people with disabilities may be arranged with advance notice by calling Joseph Ciavarro, the District Planning and Programming Engineer, at (678) 721-5164. 

Written statements on the project will be accepted until Tuesday, March 12th and should be submitted to:  Eric Duff, State Environmental Administrator, Georgia Department of Transportation Office of Environmental Services, 600 West Peachtree Street NW – 16th Floor, Atlanta, GA 30308.
