Watch out for road work on Lakeland Highway across Grand Bay Creek.
Map and Grand Bay Creek Bridge
The Public Notice doesn’t say when the work will start on GA 31 aka US 221 aka Lakeland Highway,
but you have 30 days from yesterday to comment.
I will ask for a copy of the application.
Meanwhile, the Public Notice is below, and here is the gist of it (I added the links):
State Route 31 from State Route 7 to State Route 135
(GPS Coordinates: 30.97284, -83.10488; 30.90854, -83.18506)
The proposed project will impact the buffer of Open Water (OW) 4, OW
13, and OW 31. The project will add passing lanes at four sites in
two interconnected corridors along State Route (SR) 31 in Lanier and
Lowndes Counties. The project will impact the state mandated 25-ft
buffer within the Suwannee Watershed (HUC 03110202). The disturbance
will cover 5,903 square feet and include discharging of fill and
clearing and grubbing to widen SR 31, culvert replacement, and the
installation of Best Management Practices (BMPs).
GA 31 is commonly known as Lakeland Highway, and also as US 221.
The coordinates supplied actually put the southwest end of the road work just east of Lightsey Road aka CCC Road in Lowndes County, and the northeast end east of Shiner Pond Road aka Spells Road CR 12 in Lanier County.
