Please see the announcement below for a public meeting on planned bridge projects on US 80 between Savannah and Tybee Island, a route in great need of bicycle safety improvements!
 
City of Tybee Island Public Meeting for ·U.S. 80/ S.R. 26 Bridge Replacement at Lazaretto Creek and Bull River
P.I.No. 0010560
 
On Tuesday November 17, 2015, 4-6 pm at the Tybee Island City Hall, the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) will hold a Public Meeting concerning the replacement of the U.S. 80 bridges at Lazaretto Creek and Bull River.
 
The proposed project would replace the bridges at Lazaretto Creek and Bull River with a two-lane bridge that includes bike and pedestrian improvements. Additionally, it would improve the roadway from Johnny Mercer Boulevard to Old US 80 on Tybee Island with paved shoulders and turn lanes. These changes have been determined to accomplish the purpose of this project, which is to ensure the integrity of the US 80 bridges and improve travel between Savannah and Tybee Island.
 
The purpose of this meeting is to provide the public with an opportunity to view the proposed project, ask questions, and comment on the project.
The meeting will be conducted between the hours of 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM. The meeting will be informal and the public is invited to attend anytime during these hours. There will be no formal presentation.
 
 
Comments concerning this project will be accepted until Tuesday, December 1, 2015.
