The Georgia DOT will buy land from Henry County related to the upcoming improvements on Hwy. 20.

Henry County to sell right of way to GDOT for road project

The Henry County Board of Commissioners voted at its Jan. 21 regular meeting to pass a resolution approving the Georgia Department of Transportation’s acquisition of five pieces of property along Hwy. 20 owned by the county at a total cost of $1,142,605.

This action is necessary for the state DOT to acquire the needed right of way and easements for the widening of Hwy. 20 from I-75 to Phillips Drive. The properties include land on the south side of the highway directly across from Prity Court and International Avenue as well as near the intersection with McDonough Parkway. The resolution was approved without a dissenting vote.
