(FORT STEWART, Oct. 24, 2020) – The U.S. Army seeks public comments on the Draft Finding of No Practicable Alternative for the detour road and bridge on Georgia state road 119

The Georgia Department of Transportation proposes to replace the bridge where Georgia State Road 119 crosses Taylor’s Creek on Fort Stewart.

Work will include construction of a temporary detour road and bridge directly alongside the existing road and bridge, to enable traffic to continue utilizing highway 119 during the demolition and construction process.

The temporary structure will be removed once the new construction is complete, allowing traffic to resume along existing highway 119 and its replacement bridge.

National Environmental Policy Act requirements for this action have been met via preparation of a Record of Environmental Consideration. The NEPA analysis considered the potential impacts to the natural and human environment and determined that no significant adverse impacts would result from the proposed action.

A copy of the Draft FONPA and its figures can be accessed via the Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield NEPA webpage at:

Paper copies of the document is available by contacting Melissa B. Kendrick, Stewart-Hunter NEPA/Project Integrator, at
