Road design settlement, ROW agreement in Henry County

The Henry County Board of Commissioners voted recently to accept a $54,841 settlement from Kimley-Horn & Associates for the Fairview Road widening project, which was recently completed.

The design was done by Kimley-Horn & Associates, and during construction some errors and/or omissions were found on the design plans, according to county staff. The design firm provided “a full and complete settlement” along with a form for general release of all claims, officials said.

In an unrelated action, a right-of-way easement agreement was approved between the county and Snapping Shoals EMC for electrical service to the new park at 750 Fairview Road in Ellenwood. There is no cost to the county under this agreement.
