During the project’s preconstruction phase, several meetings were held with employers, business owners, property managers and residents who will be directly impacted by the Spring Street Viaduct Replacement construction and detours.
Once the contractor and Georgia DOT produce the approved construction plan, Georgia DOT will begin outreach to affected travelers and employers; employers, recreational venues, neighborhood associations and homeowners associations will be encouraged to help their employees, customers and members aware of potential effects of the project.
The City of Atlanta has designed the detour plan related to this construction and we will make the detour maps available to the public.
In conjunction with key stakeholders in the project area, Georgia DOT will develop a comprehensive communications plan that will include a dedicated website, press releases, advertising, web banner ads, ongoing grassroots outreach, and email campaigns. Our goal is to reach as many commuters and travelers as possible with the detour information so that they can make alternate travel route decisions if needed and/or plan for additional travel time.
