GDOT Plans to Close US 84 Boat Ramp for FOUR Years: Georgia DOT is planning to replace the bridge where US 84 crosses the Satilla River near Waycross. During the project, they will use the boat ramp area for staging equipment, and the river access and boat ramp will not be available for public use. Please submit your comments to GDOT regarding this project. Accepting comments until May 10, 2019
Not sure what to include in your comment about the US 84 Bridge replacement project, and closing of the public boat ramp? Here are some suggestions:
How often do you use the public river access at the US 84 bridge in Waycross?
For what kind of activities do you use this river access? (i.e. boating, fishing, kayaking, swimming, photography, etc)
How would closing this boat ramp for approximately 4 years impact you or your community?
Are you concerned that the bridge project and/or staging equipment will have negative impacts on the Satilla River?
Are there any suggestions you have for improvements to the public boat landing once GDOT has completed the project (i.e. ramp/road/parking improvements, lighting, picnic tables, restrooms, trash service, etc)?
