Plans are underway to widen Georgetown Road (Highway 60) from near I-75 to Hopewell Elementary School in Bradley County.
The project extends 2.5 miles from the 4-lane section north of I-75 (Westlake Drive) to Freewill Road (Highway 306).
TDOT officials said it received right-of-way funding during this year’s legislative session. Preparation of right-of-way plans is underway and the plans should be finalized later this year.
Right-of-way appraisal, acquisition, and utility coordination is scheduled to begin early 2014.
Officials said the construction phase has not been funded on this project. Earliest construction, if funded, would be in early 2016 due to the number of right of way tracts (>100) and relocations (mid-teens +/-).
A committee of Bradley County citizens is advising on the project.
