Hello Ball Ground
Some long-awaited good news from the Georgia Department of Transportation.
We received approval this morning on the Concept Report for the Ball Ground Truck Bypass. This has been years in the making.
On the downside, the State has not listed this for any type of fund expenditure until 2030. On the upside, we now have a valid project with a valid date. We will now double our efforts with Senator Beach and Commissioner West in an attempt to convince the State to allocate funds much sooner.
Regardless, having an approved concept is huge. Anyone who would like to review the concept plan and approval may do so here at City Hall during normal business hours.
We are tentatively scheduled to have the striping crews downtown for roadway and crosswalk striping the week of November 15th, while the repairs and resurfacing of Groover Street between Old Dawsonville Road and Civic Drive are scheduled for the week of Thanksgiving.
As always, the weather will play a role in maintaining these dates.
Have a great day Ball Ground.
