Downtown Macon, Baby!

Notified About

  • 2686 Riverview Rd Macon, GA, 31204, USA - Macon
    This property has been an eye sore that invites crime into a mostly safe area. It seems that any work being done has stopped a long time ago. Not to mention property devaluation! It either needs to be fixed or sold to someone who can bring it to the standard of the neighborhood in a timely manner! The property owner, Simmons Enterprises I,LLC, lists Brad Simmons as the agent. It appears that Brad Simmons is also co-owner of the new Macon Smiles Piano Bar at 570 Mulberry Street. I look forward to this issue being addressed and not being allowed to continue as is. Thank you!
  • 2951 Glenrock Drive Macon, Georgia - Macon
    It appears they cleaned out the house and moved the resident leaving a large pile of trash and junk in the driveway. It is extremely unsightly.
  • I-75 S & N Pierce Ave Macon, GA, 31204, USA - Macon
    Pierce Ave. crossing Riverside to access I 75 N needs to have lanes repainted to clearly show through lane and turn lane onto N. Pierce Ave, leading to Amerson Park. Too many instances of vehicles in right turn lane forcing their way into left through lane, and accident is imminent.
  • I-75n Underpass (Exit 167) @ N. Pierce Ave. Macon, Georgia - Macon

    The new underpass of I-75N Exit 167 (Pierce Ave.) needs major attention!!! It looks like a neglected, blighted, slum area with broken pavement and debris in the median and sidewalk.

    The underpass is a dark tunnel that needs to be lit. The pigeon net needs to be replaced for the ones that were removed during construction. The median needs reflecting markers or paint around the edges because it's hard to see in dim light turning left from N. Pierce.

    The entrance to N. Pierce Ave. is also slummy looking with debris and gravel in the road and along the newly installed sidewalk. The wooded area also needs attention. The new asphalt pavement is already starting to breakup at the entrance of N. Pierce at the underpass. The transition from the old road to the new asphalt isn't smooth. Very aggravating having to bump over both ends of the new portion twice a day!

    The landscape barrier fence taking a right onto Riverside Dr. from the underpass has been breached with red dirt running onto the road.

    This exit is a major gateway to Macon and it's an embarrassing site for our visitor's (and locals) to see. It would be nice to see some sort of mural art (with lights highlighting it) depicting Macon along those long walls of the underpass. Making Macon a welcoming site for weary travelers who might want to stay and see more of what our new city has to offer (other than being a pit stop)!

    I have spoken to Kimberly Lawson with the Thomaston GA DOT office (706-741-3439) at a public meeting on Jan. 16, 2014 about this issue. However, the problems remain untouched.

    I'm not sure what department is in charge here, but I would be very thankful for any attention you can provide to get this matter taken care of and beautify Macon. Thank you..HELP, PLEASE!!!

    P.S. Riverview Road bridge needs sidewalk swept of gravel. Other areas of town also need gravel swept up. Thanks!

  • Abandoned house Acknowledged
    2888 Riverview Road MaconMacon, Georgia - Macon
    Home abandoned few years ago, appeared to be in nice condition. Yard kept up until about 3 years ago. Now totally overgrown, house not even visible and large plants from driveway joints! As it is only two doors down from Riverview Bridge, it’s a visible eyesore to everyone entering the neighborhood.
  • North Pierce Ave. @ I-75 N Underpass Macon, Georgia - Macon
    This is probably a GDOT matter. I believe it's part of the "Prince Project". Lights under the underpass were installed MONTHS ago, however they seems to have yet to be turned on because I came through the "dark tunnel" the other night. At certain times of the day, it's very dangerous because of the sun's glare and not being able to see oncoming traffic. Can you please help to get the lights turned on after 3+ years of waiting for them? I seems to never be able to catch the right person in the office when I call GDOT. THANK YOU!!!
  • 2944 Audubon Dr Macon, GA, 31204, USA - Macon
    Vacant house with junk all over exterior/side of home, children's pool laying on side, windows ajar at times, back yard faces Southshore Court (toward other decently kept homes) and is grown over with vegetation and is source of pests - buzzards seen roosting in dead tree on property
  • 2938 Audubon Dr Macon, GA, 31204, USA - Macon
    Junk everywhere in yard, trash everywhere all over front yard
  • Amerson River Park 2551 North Pierce Drive, Macon, GA 31204, USA - Macon-Bibb County

  • 1221 Clairmont Pl Macon, Georgia - Macon
    Tree limbs & small branches on curbside
  • 2918 Riverside Drive Macon, Georgia - Macon

    Turn lane in front of State Bank on Riverside Drive headed towards Wimbish Rd. is backwards. It needs to be re-striped to be a left turn lane headed north. Before repaving, it WAS a left turn lane. Since the re-paving, the lane markers are also shorter turning into Riverview road headed south than they were before re-paving. The solid yellow line doesn't allow traffic to move over into a left turn lane going into the bank that used to be there....causing a back up of traffic (and angry honkers). I believe that it used to be white broken lines before.

    Please observe traffic trying to left turn into State Bank in the late afternoons, especially Fridays. Please revert back to previous lane markings to make it safer for everyone!

    I have previously talked to some DOT representatives about this issue, to no avail..so this info will need to be forwarded to appropriate authorities. THANK YOU!
