Trish Sullivan and Sammy Carden from the city of Euharlee share their thoughts about the proposed Route DV-E, which would go through the city’s conservation easement. Both agree that a 411 Connector needs to be constructed, but G-DOT’s proposed route would be expensive and harmful to the environment.
Archaeologist Steve Webb discusses why there’s got to be a better route that will not destroy the Historic Dobbins Mining Landscape.
Civl Engineer, Chris Harrell discusses why GDOT’s proposed 411 connector route is the most expensive and environmentally harmful route.
GDOT has chosen the most environmentally harmful route for the 411 connector. Aquatic scientist Tony Greco explains his findings here.
Thirty years and a much needed connector to I-75. the problem is workers have yet to pour any pavement. Channel 2’s John Bachman talked to opponents who say the states wants to spend millions to save drivers 24 seconds.
A diverse group of individuals and organizations is joining forces to urge the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) to find a better route to connect U.S. 411 and the city of Rome to I-75. The Coalition for the Right Road (CORR) today is launching a 12-week video campaign calling for an alternative route, instead of GDOT’s so-called Route D-VE.
The Georgia Department of Transportation has failed to study several, critical environmental and historic resource issues, but one of the more interesting items in the U.S. 411 Connector debate is the historical significance of the Dobbins Mine site. As it stands, the mine site will be destroyed by GDOT’s proposed route (Route D-VE) and its planned interchange at Interstate 75. The coalition firmly believes the Dobbins Mine site is eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places and must be preserved.
