Sandy Springs still looking for comments on bridge plan

City officials say the project will ease congestion in the area and reduce crashes, which now happen nearly once a day.

Displays of the project will be available for review and comment at Sandy Springs City Hall for the next 10 business days. Written comments about the project can be submitted to the city during that same time.

The city will attach all comments to its environmental study of the $3 million to $4 million plan. Sandy Springs is looking for new state or federal funds to help pay for the project it has already committed $1.9 million toward.

Mayor Eva Galambos, though, has said the city will pay the full cost if no other money can be found. The city wants to break ground on the widening in June.
