(15938) * U.S. 441 Morgan and Putnam Counties, Georgia: prepared right-of-way plans, quantities and preliminary and final construction drawings for widening and reconstructing a 17-mile (27.4-kilometer) section. The existing two- and three-lane roadway was widened to a four-lane rural section with a 44-foot (13.4-meter) depressed median. The project was part of the Governor's Road Improvement Program (GRIP). Comprised of 16 corridors, the GRIP system converts existing primary routes and truck connecting routes into multilane highways. When completed, the system will place 98% of Georgia's population within 20 miles (32 kilometers) of a multilane highway and also provide access for oversized trucks to all cities with populations above 2,000. (15879) * I-75/I-575 High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Study, Atlanta, Georgia: the project involves transportation improvements to I-75 and I-575 in the Northwest Corridor, which extends northwest along I-75 from Akers Mill Road to Hickory Grove Road and along I-575 from the I-75/I-575 interchange to Sixes Road. The improvements include the addition of managed lanes on both I-75 and I-575. As project engineer for 26 miles (41.8 kilometers) of HOV lanes along I-75 and I-575, prepared the 30% preliminary plans and assisted with the development of the final environmental impact statement (FEIS).
