County considering closing part of Shuler Road
Placeholder Image

The Hall County Board of Commissioners will consider a request to close off part of a northwest Hall road for residents complaining of trash dumping and speeding.

The request from HWW II, LLC is asking Hall County to partially abandon the right-of-way on Shuler Road starting at its intersection with Pine Haven Drive for about 700 feet.

If approved, a cul-de-sac would be built where the county's right-of-way would pick back up.

The proposal would block through-traffic on that gravel section of the road.

According to the request made by Tim Whitmire, there is "unauthorized dumping" on the area in question and unsafe driving conditions.

Hall County Engineer Kevin McInturff said the county's Public Works Department has been hearing from residents who both approve of the request and those who prefer to keep the road as it is.

McInturff said if the commissioners approved abandonment of the right-of-way, the county would likely pay for the expenses to close the road and build the cul-de-sac.

Commissioners will hold a public hearing at their Thursday night meeting.
