Enota bypass plans scrapped in favor of widening, realigning existing roads
Gainesville city documents show the current traffic routes through town and plans for where traffic could be routed with some road improvements.
The much-maligned Enota Bypass has been ditched for now, with Gainesville officials looking instead at using existing streets to help steer traffic around one of the city’s busiest roads, Green Street. City officials discussed plans Thursday calling for using existing state routes to connect Thompson Bridge Road to Limestone Parkway, Jesse Jewell Parkway and Interstate 985. The project would call for widening and realigning Oak Tree Drive, which is between Thompson Bridge Road and Riverside Drive, and a traffic light at its intersection with Thompson Bridge Road.
