A public information open house to discuss the Georgia Department Of Transportation’s proposed project for safety improvements at the intersection of State Route (SR) 3 and Graysville Road in Catoosa County is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 11, from 5 until 7 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Colonnade Civic Center, at 264 Catoosa Circle in Ringgold.

Catoosa County’s residents interested in learning more about the proposed project are encouraged to attend the meeting and express their thoughts and preferences.

“We would like to hear the viewpoints and concerns of all area residents,” said DeWayne Comer, district engineer at the Georgia DOT office in Cartersville.

The proposed plans call for the construction of a safety improvement roundabout at the intersection of SR 3 with Graysville Road in Catoosa County, in order to reduce crash frequency and severity and improve operational efficiency at this intersection.

“The Georgia DOT strongly believes that since this project is intended to serve the people of Catoosa County, the ideas and preferences of these people are important,” Comer said. “This meeting will provide the public with an opportunity to review the proposed project, ask questions and express their preferences as well as their concerns.”

The open house will be informal and the public is invited to attend anytime between 6 and 8 p.m. The meeting site is accessible to persons with disabilities. Accommodations for people with disabilities can be arranged with advance notice by calling Cherie Marsh at 678-721-5257.

Written statements will be accepted concerning this project until Dec. 22 and may be submitted to: Glenn Bowman, P.E., state environmental administrator, Georgia Department of Transportation, 600 West Peachtree Street, NW – 16th floor, Atlanta, Ga., 30308.
