“This project was particularly complex and dealt with a wide variety of environmental constraints; however, the project ultimately gained environmental approval from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) as well as approval of the Concept Reports. Based on my experience with this firm, during this project, I would highly recommend Croy Engineering for your consulting needs.”
~ Peter Emmanuel, P.E., Project Manager, GDOT Office of Program Delivery
The project will widen and relocate existing SR 92 from just south of Pine Drive in the City of Douglasville to Nebo Road in the City of Hiram. The relocated portion of the proposed roadway would be constructed on new location and would provide a grade separated crossing at US 78/Bankhead Highway, the Norfolk Southern railroad, and Strickland Street. The total project length is approximately 9.5 miles.
Croy Engineering was contracted by the City of Douglasville and Paulding County to complete the Concept Design and NEPA Environmental phases of this project which included:
- Two separate Concept Reports (Douglas County and Paulding County)
- An Environmental Assessment document and approved FONSI
- Intensive Public Involvement process with an Environmental Justice community. These efforts included:
- Formation of a stakeholder advisory group
- Conducting community workshops
- Development of renderings and virtual tours to illustrate the impacts of the proposed project
Results of this intensive public involvement helped minimize residential and commercial displacements and eliminated impacts to numerous historical structures along the proposed corridor.
