Like Hall, area counties also are wrestling with transportation issues. Some $60 million in road projects are planned in counties on Hall’s borders, and area residents have an opportunity to get a closer look at the planned work. Public meetings are set for Sept. 11 in Helen and Sept. 12 in Maysville on projects planned for Banks, Barrow, Dawson, Elbert, Franklin, Habersham, Hart, Jackson, Lumpkin, Madison, Oconee, Rabun, Stephens, Towns, Union, Walton and White counties.
