Residents offer new option to Martin Road widening plans
Alternative would divert truck traffic
This map shows the alternative option to the planned eventual widening of Martin Road in South Hall.
Martin Road area residents are pitching an alternative to current long-range plans to widen the South Hall road. The group suggested Wednesday night a realignment of Falcon Parkway/Ga. 13 between Hog Mountain Road and Pauline Drive. The project would, in effect, move the state route closer to the planned Exit 14 off Interstate 985 and traffic coming from I-985, particularly trucks, away from Martin Road and other residential areas.
