MOULTRIE – Area residents have two opportunities next week to give their opinions on a regionally important transportation project, the proposed widening and reconstruction of state Route 133 between Moultrie and Albany.

The Georgia Department of Transportation is holding two public information open houses on the proposed project:

  • Monday, Jan. 26, at Doerun Elementary School, 111 Mathis Ave., Doerun.
  • Tuesday, Jan. 27, at Okapilco Elementary School, 3300 Highway 33 N, Moultrie.

Georgia DOT representatives will be available to discuss the project and answer questions from 4 to 7 p.m. both days. There will not be a formal presentation. Written or verbal statements may be submitted during the open house. Written comments also may be submitted by mail or online by Friday, Feb. 6. Mailed comments should be sent to:

Ms. Hiral Patel, P.E.
Georgia Department of Transportation
600 West Peachtree St. NW

Atlanta, GA 30308
