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!
30253 Mcdonough, GA, USA - McDonough
All of these streets need litter pick up they all have so much litter everywhere the litter is deliberately and intentionally be thrown around Mcdonough,Stockbridge and Locust Grove Georgia every week. Something need to be done because this need to stop. The picture dose not show all of the street listed how much litter and some trash is lying around.
The Henry county commissioners and dot supervisors need to take a ride around Henry county in all the areas listed and they can see just how much litter has just been accumulating and thrown all over the streets it is awful.
This is an eyesore and disgusting to the residents that live in these cities of Henry county , we are paying high taxes like other counties but Henry county is the only county where there is litter all over each street they @#$% near have. I never seen nothing like this.
Highway 42 near Highway 138 Stockbridge Georgia have abandoned tires on a side road that has been there for 1 year across from the chevron gas station and DOT have not even removed them.
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!
2246-2250 Cotillion Drive Dunwoody, Georgia - DunwoodyDont know if this road is maintained by the DOT or Dunwoody but there is a pot hole that is growing at the marked location.
617 Moreland Ave Ne Atlanta, Georgia - Poncey-HighlandPublic record indicates 617 Moreland Ave NE is owned by the DOT and leased to the City of Atlanta under the Freedom Parkway lease. The sidewalk is entirely broken. As the property owner, the City is responsible for fixing this sidewalk. Sidewalk needs to be repaired by City.
Willeo Road GA - RoswellSeveral potholes on Willeo Creek Bridge. Resident request repair from RDOT even through although the bridge borders Cobb County.
1575 Bass Road Macon, Georgia - Macon-Bibb CountyOn Saturday (April 21st) the politicians were not content to leave the ROW clean anywhere in North Macon. Shane Mobley started by finding every other politician's sign (whether it was on the ROW, off off the ROW, or uncertain if it was off or on the ROW) and erecting a large sign on steel rebar in front of it. The starting point for this was on Bass Road, across from the Publix Shopping Center where he trashed the ROW. The same thing has happened all the way out Bass Road and to the end of Foster Road, where there are several new signs from Mobley, Washburn, Bechtel, and Kemp. Since Monday will be a rain day (not good for digging holes) that will be a good time to keep a couple of crews busy as long as they are going to get paid for sitting around the shop anyway. Here is a list of roads where there are multiple campaign signs clearly on the ROW. Bass Road, Foster Road, Forrest Hill Road, Northside Drive, Wesleyan Drive, Rivoli Drive, Zebulon Road, etc, etc, etc. I know it seems like a losing battle, but these people are in violation of State Law (32-6-51) and Local Ordinance (16-11) and should not be allowed to insult the citizens by trashing the roadside without any responsibility whatsoever. GDOT is handling the illegal signs on Riverside Drive and US Hwy 41 because those are federal/state roads. Contact Alan Coleman at GDOT for confirmation.
2078-2162 Savoy Drive Atlanta, Georgia - DunwoodyGA DOT cleared out a lot of trees between 285 East and Savoy Drive. They cleaned up the tree and landscaping debris but did not clean up the large amount of garbage on the hill. This looks terrible. Please send a crew to clean up these 2 areas.
2936 Riverside Drive Macon, Georgia - MaconLast year, GDOT had to be involved in this same, exact issue. The used car lot at this location has, AGAIN, erected an illegal commercial sign on the public R-O-W. The R-O-W line is defined here by the curb for the parking lot. The dirt and grasssy area is within the public R-O-W. Please have a crew remove this sign immediately as it violates Macon-Bibb Ordinance 16-11 and crews have the authority to remove anything that is illegally placed on the public R-O-W.
156-172 Georgia 138 Stockbridge, GA 30281, USA - Henry CountyThere is a brown boarded up house near a church and Chevron just past 138/42 intersection. The second one is a brick house that burnt up where a child was killed in it just before Millers Mill. There is an empty brick house that the DOT used as an office when the bridge was going in on 138. There is a blue house that use to be a barber shop on the corner of 138/Hemphill.
Spring Buford Conn Atlanta, GA - Lindridge/Martin ManorThe GADOT just recently finish repaving the Spring/Buford Connector. However, the exit ramp to enter North I-85 had many pot hole before the repaving and now they're back, and bigger than before. If left unnoticed, the hole will be worse than before.
1005-1007 Eisenhower Pkwy Macon, GA, 31206, USA - MaconEisenhower Parkway has been totally trashed with illegal signs on the public ROW. The next rain day, when crews can't dig in the dirt, please have a couple of guys inn a pickup truck make a run. It will take them a couple of hours to go from Broadway out to Macon State, but will be a huge improvement. GDOT does not have a problem with Public Works or private citizens doing clean-up on US 80 (or any other state or federal highway for that matter) because the results are what count. The people at the Macon Mall have already cleaned up in that area.
