Henry County staff recently updated the board of commissioners on various transportation SPLOST projects throughout the county. As part of the update, an initial concept for the Bill Gardner Parkway widening is now available.

The T-SPLOST widening project extends between state route 155 and I-75. The project will include widening the road to support four travel lanes as well as a pedestrian path on either side of the road. Because this concept is preliminary in nature, further revisions are possible.

As of July, the design engineer was undergoing survey work for the corridor. Once design plans are final, then right of way acquisition will follow. Construction could commence in mid to late 2024.
