Open house for proposed U.S. 411 connector in Bartow Co.

A public information open house to share information on the modifications to the area of the Georgia DOTs proposed US 411 Connector project in Bartow County is scheduled for Thursday, March 18, 2010, from 4 until 7 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Cartersville Civic Center, located at 435 West Main Street in the city of Cartersville. The proposed project calls for a new US 411 to I-75 connection by constructing a rural freeway on a new location between the existing US 411/US 41 interchange and the current State Route (SR) 20 east of I-75, with a new I-75 interchange. Plans also include interchange improvements at US 41. The project would begin at the intersection of US 411 and US 41 and extend to SR 20 east of I-75, for a distance of 7.31 miles. Bartow and Floyd County residents interested in learning more about the proposed project are encouraged to attend the meeting and express their thoughts and preferences.
