Beginning in late January 2019, Hinesville residents will see work begin to construct sidewalks in the area of S. Main Street.
The project, administered by the City of Hinesville, is a joint partnership comprised of Liberty County, the Cities of Hinesville and Walthourville, Liberty County Board of Education and Georgia Department of Transportation. On December 6, the Hinesville City Council awarded Sittle Construction the bid for the project. A significant portion of the funding (90%) is covered through the 5307 Federal Transit Administration grant program administered by the Georgia Department of Transportation, while the remainder is a joint fiscal project through the partners.
Sidewalks will be constructed in the following locations, South Main Street/Shaw Road, from Glen Bryant Road to Airport Road, Ralph Quarterman Drive, from Georgia State Route 38 to S. Main Street and Darsey Road, from Georgia State Route 38 and S. Main Street.
These sidewalks, all of which will be ADA compliant and have an average width of five (5) feet, will increase pedestrian access and safety within Liberty County. The anticipated completion date for all work is August 2019.
During this project, area residents should expect to see traffic control elements such as row clearing (removal of trees), site preparation and construction. These elements may result in slower travel times along these streets. The public will be kept up-to-date on the progress of construction as sections of the project are completed at cityofhinesville.org. Area residents are also encouraged to sign up for the Notify Me application on the City of Hinesville’s website, cityofhinesville.org, to receive news alerts regarding issues in Hinesville, including any future road closures for this project.
