The long-awaited Spout Springs Road widening project has been delayed by a few months, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.

A press release Monday, July 29, about construction bids being awarded in area transportation projects noted that “the widening and reconstruction on Spout Springs Road in Hall County was deferred and will be awarded at a later date.”

An environmental permit related to the project is still in the works, district spokeswoman Katie Strickland said in an email.

“In order to get this permit approved before work begins, the project’s official award was deferred for 120 days (from the June 21 bid letting), so they should have everything in order by” Oct. 18, she said.

The project calls for widening Spout Springs in South Hall from two to four lanes with a 20-foot raised median and sidewalks. The widening will run from Interstate 985 to Union Circle — a distance of 3.2 miles.

“Updates regarding this project will be available after the official announcement,” the press release states.
