AUGUSTA,Ga (WJBF) Next week the public is invited to comment on the new bridge planned for I-20 over the Savannah River and Augusta canal.
We showed you the DOT renderings of the bridge and the design is drawing some complaints.
Some want to see a protected bike path as part of the bridge.
While other say the design is too bland to be a major gateway into the city.
We’re not in charge of those funds so I’d have see if there is any way to make some changes and beautify it a little bit,” said Mayor Pro-Tem, Mary Davis.
You would like to see it more iconic?
“If it’s financially doable I have had some complaints about that as well I just don’t know the answers to it,” said Davis/
A D-O-T spokesperson says the bridge renderings are for informational purposes and do not represent exactly what the bridge will look like.
A public information session on the bridge will be July 11th from 5 to 7 at the Georgia Welcome Center
