Next phase of Second Street Corridor Connector begins

Macon-Bibb County celebrated the beginning of the Second Street Corridor Connector’s second phase of construction on November 17 with a groundbreaking ceremony. This phase will cost $1.7 million and start at the realigned Edgewood Avenue and end where the Connector will later be built over the railroad.

The work consists of improving the storm drainage system, installing a 20” waterline to serve Navicent Health, constructing the road and shared sidewalks, and installing new lighting. During construction, First Street from Edgewood Avenue to Elm Street will be closed and eventually rerouted, and the at grade crossing on Elm Street will be permanently closed.

Demolition makes way for Log Cabin Drive improvements

Crews from Macon-Bibb County’s Public Works Department tore down an abandoned house at the corner of Log Cabin Drive and Hollingsworth Road in mid-November to make way for the realignment of the intersection as part of a $1.5 million, SPLOST-funded road and pedestrian safety improvement project.

The Log Cabin Drive improvement project will include a new pedestrian bridge and repairs to the current roadway bridge over Rocky Creek; constructing new curb and gutter, sidewalk, drainage swales, drainage structures and driveways; realign the intersection of Hollingsworth Road and Log Cabin Drive; adding a northbound left-turn-lane on Log Cabin Drive at Hollingsworth Road; and more.

Macon-Bibb launches website dedicated to SPLOST projects

Macon-Bibb County has launched a new website at www.splost.info as another way for people to learn about projects funded by the voter-approved Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST). Currently, the Commission regularly discusses and approves items related to projects, monthly financial statements are posted on the Macon-Bibb website, regular meetings are held with the SPLOST Advisory Committee, and local media frequently covers progress on the projects.

“One of our charges as the SPLOST Advisory Committee was to increase and improve communication with the public, both providing information to the public and giving feedback to the government based on what people expect,” says Committee Chair Jeffery Monroe. “This website provides us a single place where people can learn about the projects they approved, as well as to ask questions.”
