Orange cones. Orange barrels. Delays. Traffic. You would be hard pressed to find anyone that has not complained about these things at one point or another. Recently they seem to be a common sight all across the CSRA. While these additions to our daily commutes can create a headache – and even test our patience – the Georgia State Transportation Board and Department of Transportation explain that these are actually good signs because they are signs of growth.
Don Grantham, the Chairman of the Georgia Transportation Board, and Russell McMurray, a commissioner with the Georgia Department of Transportation, stopped by the set of “The Means Report” to talk about the progress that is being made in roads across the state, including the work that we are seeing right here in the CSRA. During their visit they addressed a multitude of topics including when commuters will finally see an end to the seemingly never ending work on Wrightsboro Road. However, they also touched upon improving the other sections of the highly traveled road that has not been touched by this recent work and is riddled with divots and potholes.
From roadwork and improvements to their push to keep drivers safe on the road, Grantham and McMurray cover a wide array of topics. If you ever drive on Georgia’s roads, you will not want to miss their interview.
