PUBLIC NOTICE: Lower Fayetteville Road at Lora Smith Road Intersection Improvement Project.
Lower Fayetteville Road at Lora Smith Road Intersection Improvement Project.
This advisory is issued to inform the public of an application for a stream buffer variance submitted pursuant to the Georgia Erosion and Sedimentation Act O.C.G.A. 12-7-1. The public is invited to comment during a 30-day review period of the proposed Lower Fayetteville Road at Lora Smith Road Intersection Improvement project. The proposed Coweta County Lower Fayetteville Road at Lora Smith Road intersection improvement project, begins about 6 miles east of the City of Newnan, Georgia. The approximate midpoint of this project is 33.3731 degrees north Latitude and -84.7031 degrees west Longitude. The transportation project is approximately 0.351 mile in length. As part of the SPLOST program, Coweta County proposes to undertake road improvements to the intersection of Lora Smith Road and Lower Fayetteville Road. Lower Fayetteville Road and Lora Smith Road are two-lane facilities that form a tee-intersection. The intersection is currently under stop control, lacks adequate sight distance and has a high crash rate. The limits of the project are the intersection of Lower Fayetteville Road and Lora Smith Road and turn lanes for each approach. The major performance goal of the project is to increase sight distance, improve traffic flow and reduce crashes. The proposed road improvements include signalizing the intersection, adding turn lanes for all approaches and overlaying of the existing pavement. Culvert replacement and improvements to existing roadside ditches to improve stormwater drainage as well as clearing of vegetative growth to address the sight distance issues are also part of the project.
Plans may be reviewed at the Coweta County Engineering Office, 21 East Washington Street, Newnan, Georgia, 30263. Since the Environmental Protection Division has no authority to zone property or determine land use, only those comments addressing issues related to air, water, and land protection will be considered in the application review process. Written comments should be submitted to: Program Manager, Nonpoint Source Program, Erosion and Sedimentation Control, 4220 International Parkway, Suite 101, Atlanta, Georgia, 30354.
