Bike Lanes Confirmed for GDOT Project!


The GDOT project manager, Mr. Bryan Lott, has confirmed that there are bike lanes and other pedestrian accommodations proposed for sections of the Blairsville to Young Harris, GA, project.

The details on the exact bicycle and pedestrian accommodations proposed in the scope of this project are as follows:

At the Blairsville end of the project, there is proposed a 5’ sidewalk adjacent to the southbound lanes for approx. 0.2 miles.

Leaving Blairsville, the proposed scope transitions to a rural typical section with bikeable shoulders on either side of the roadway (10’ total shoulder width, 6.5’ paved with rumble strips along the edge of travel). This continues for about 6 miles before transitioning back to an urban typical section on the approach to Young Harris, which includes 4’ bike lanes and 5’ sidewalks on either side of the roadway.

The bike lanes end ahead of the proposed roundabout at Brasstown Creek Rd and the sidewalk ties to the existing sidewalk in Young Harris. On the northern side of Young Harris there are proposed 5’ sidewalks connecting the existing Young Harris sidewalks, which end at the proposed roundabout at Timberline Dr. The proposed bypass around Young Harris incorporates a rural typical section with 6.5’ paved shoulder.

Should you have any questions, comments, or concerns about GDOT’s draft FY 2021-2024 STIP please contact the Department’s coordinator at .
