Georgia Environmental Action Alert: 411 Connector, Route D-VE

PLEASE visit the following website to register your objection to Route D-VE:

This alert allows you the opportunity to send a message (which has already been developed, but can be modified) opposing Route D-VE to several elected officials and transportation officials. It literally takes a few seconds to complete the process.

Thanks to our friends at the Broad River Water Association, Georgia Canoeing Association, Georgia Conservancy, Georgia Conservation Voters, Georgia Forest Watch and Georgia River Network for supporting this action alert. Your help and support means a lot!
