SR96 Widening - Houston/Peach Counties
The State Route (SR) 96 widening project will improve the capacity, operational efficiency, and continuity of the SR 96 corridor between Interstate 75 and Old Hawkinsville Road/Thompson Mill Road, as growth on the corridor continues.
The proposed project begins 0.4 miles east of I-75 and ends 0.28 miles east of Old Hawkinsville Road/Thompson Mill Road. This project would widen the existing two-lane rural road to a four-lane urban facility separated at different locations by either a 44-foot grassed median or a 24-foot raised median. The urban section will also include 4-foot bike lanes, curb and gutter, and five-foot wide sidewalks along both sides of SR 96 in Houston County.
