GDOT needs input on Scenic Highway widening through Snellville

Snellville residents have the chance to weigh in on the Georgia Department of Transportation’s future widening of Scenic Highway from Highway 78 to Sugarloaf Parkway. GDOT wants citizens living and working in the area to consider how the project will impact environmental, economic and social concerns.

According information from the city, there is no immediate timeline for the project.

Design for the project is being developed at the same time as an environmental analysis and review of environmental laws and regulations.

“In particular, GDOT would appreciate assistance in identifying low-income and minority neighborhoods,” a GDOT letter to the city reads. “This would also include help in identifying neighborhood leaders and minority groups or associations located throughout the affected communities within the project’s area of potential effect. We would like to be certain that these communities are recognized and given the opportunity to fully participate and provide meaningful input in the project development process.”
