Winder embarking on transportation study


“At the November meeting of the Winder City Council, the Council officially approved the engagement of Atlas Technical Consultants, LLC, for multiple upcoming projects including a citywide transportation study and concept plans to redesign the intersection at Martin Luther King Jr. Drive at East Midland Avenue.

Federal funds represent $300,000 in this project with a required City match of $75,000.

According to City Engineer, Gerard Brewer, “We are excited to begin this comprehensive evaluation of the City of Winder’s transportation issues which will include our experts’ evaluations as well as input from our citizens and the public.  This plan, in conjunction with the recently passed TSPLOST, is the City’s continued effort toward addressing some of the transportation issues in Winder.

The study will provide the city with detailed insights into current traffic patterns, potential areas of improvement, and innovative solutions to enhance mobility and accessibility for all residents. The project’s start date soon depending upon funding release with public involvement meetings beginning some time likely after the first of the new year.”
