CORR Attends October GDOT Board Meeting

This week members of Coalition for the Right Road (CORR) attended the Georgia Department of Transportation’s monthly board meeting to register opposition against the agency’s preferred design, Route D-VE. The route will cost state taxpayers more than $280 million and is plagued with several environmental and road design issues.

Approximately, 40 residents and supporters – dressed in red shirts and with stickers affixed to their clothes – made the trip from Cartersville to seek answers about this ill-fated project from GDOT District Representative David Doss, Chief Engineer Gerald Ross and/or Project Manager Albert Shelby. Conveniently, they were not available to comment or answer questions for a few minutes after the meeting.  However, the group did get the opportunity to speak with GDOT’s deputy press secretary and asked several questions. Once CORR receives answers to those questions, we will post them on the website.

Overall, the trip was a great success and kept the pressure on. To attend future GDOT board meetings (possibly in November or December), please email us at US411connector@gmail.com. Transportation to the board meeting is provided.

(For those that attended, CORR thanks you for your continued support.)
