Notified About

  • 776 Lee Rd Macon 31204, United States - Macon
    When the interstate system was changed, the DOT created a lane for people turning north on Riverside Drive from Lee Road. The change in the interstate made this turn much more dangerous so they gave us a safety turning lane which is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY when turning left on Riverside Drive. I just tried to use that safety lane to find it NO LONGER EXISTS!!!! It has been painted over and taken away. Apparently, a turn lane was created just after it for people to turn into the new car wash. GIVE ME MY NECESSARY SAFETY LANE BACK!!!!!! I don’t understand how it can just be removed when it was created specifically due to the dangerous situation the change in the interstate brought to us.
  • Sign - Repair Archived
    Exit 5 Interstate 516 Savannah, Georgia - Savannah
    On I-516 north/west bound, exit 5 to I-16 has no working lights at 6:30am when it is dark. Also exits 165 & 166 on I-16 east bound are also dark. This has been the case for several weeks (if not longer). GA DOT says it's Chatham County's responsibility

  • 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!!!
  • 4301 Old Georgetown Trail Dunwoody, Georgia - Dunwoody

    DOT Cut down trees to put up a sign and they did not remove the trees, they dropped them in a culvert which has created a dam and sends water over into GRC parking lot and collecting trash.

    Why did they not have to get a permit for the new sign?

  • 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!

    2246-2250 Cotillion Drive Dunwoody, Georgia - Dunwoody
    Dont know if this road is maintained by the DOT or Dunwoody but there is a pot hole that is growing at the marked location.
  • 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!

  • 2860 Holcomb Bridge Rd Roswell 30076, United States - Roswell
    Pothole still not fixed even though GDOT said it was and closed the issue.
  • Other Archived
    Mill Rd McDonough 30253, United States - Henry County
    Guys! There is practically NO lines left on Jonesboro Rd. near Mill Rd. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen. HCDOT says they may have money next year in the LMIG fund. We CANNOT wait until next year to get this addressed!
  • Willeo Road GA - Roswell
    Several potholes on Willeo Creek Bridge. Resident request repair from RDOT even through although the bridge borders Cobb County.
  • 2247 North Decatur Road Decatur, Georgia - Decatur
    Potholes and sinkholes on N Decatur road, both sides of the road after N. Superior and Superior ave. Been reported to City of Decatur several times. DeKalb county says "not their problem." GDOT says not their problem. Decatur says 'problem assigned." Whose problem is it? If more people will report these problems, we might get them fixed.
