This Wednesday, Nov. 14, Avondale Estates City Commission and mayor, along with the city’s staff and the Stantec Consulting team, will host a public meeting about the US 278 Redesign Project.
The project is a longstanding effort – going all the way back to 2014 – to improve US 278, the city’s main road. Part of the project includes a “road diet,” which would reduce the road from five lanes to three between Ashton Place and Sam’s Crossing.
After meeting with the Georgia Department of Transportation and receiving a $1.5 million grant over the summer, Avondale has now entered the design phase of the project. The upcoming meeting will “review the history of the US 278 Redesign Project, go over where we are now, look at project future and review some possible design options,” according to a city newsletter.
The first half of the meeting will be a presentation style, while the last half will take an interactive form for attendees.
With more project presentations and forums to come, this meeting will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 14, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Avondale Estates’ City Hall, located at 21 North Avondale Plaza.
