Public Meeting Held May 19, 2011 to Review Bannerman Road Study Alternatives
The Leon County Department of Public Works hosted a public meeting to discuss its Bannerman Road Corridor Study on Thursday, May 19, 2011, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, at Canopy Roads Baptist Church, 925 Bannerman Road, east of Meridian Road.
The goal of the study is to produce a preferred roadway alternative alignment for Bannerman Road, the approximately 4.6 miles between Thomasville Road and Meridian Road. It evaluates the projected transportation needs of the residential and commercial sectors along and surrounding Bannerman Road.
In 2010 the Leon County Department of Public Works authorized RS&H to perform the Bannerman Road Corridor Study. At the public meeting, the Bannerman Road Corridor Study project team consisting of Leon County staff, RS&H Team staff, and the Bannerman Road Citizens Advisory Committee members, appointed by the Leon County Commissioners, unveiled a series of alternatives.
May 19 Public Meeting
The meeting was in three parts. First, during an informal session from 6:00 to 6:30, the public had time to scan large-scale aerial photos of alternative Bannerman corridor plans and talk one-on-one with Leon County public works engineers, RS&H Team consulting engineers, and the Citizens Advisory Committee for the Bannerman Road study. Second, from 6:30 to 7:00 was a formal presentation that reviewed the Bannerman Road Corridor Study progress to date. The third part of the meeting, from 7:00 to 8:00, allowed the public additional time to speak with the project team regarding follow-up questions, concerns and comments.
The Bannerman Road Corridor Study project team presented three alternatives for the study’s three segments of Bannerman Road. You can click on the following to see the presentation displays for Segment 1 (Meridian to Bull Headley), Segment 2, (Bull Headley to Tekesta), and Segment 3 (Tekesta to Thomasville).
NOTE: Each Segment is a large file and will take a few moments to load and appear. Once the Segment image appears on the screen, place your cursor in the lower right-hand corner of the page. Several sizing options, including a plus sign, will appear. Place your cursor on the plus sign -- + -- in the lower right-hand corner to magnify the image size of the roadway. Then use the scroll bar on your browser to move the roadway image left or right.
Each alternative for each segment has a price estimate. You can see the roadway alternative cost estimates here. In the meantime, no money has been requested or budgeted for Bannerman Road construction. When the study is completed later this year and presented to the Leon County Commissioners, the Commissioners will have the option to include Bannerman Road in its list of priorities for future road construction.
To provide an overview of the study, its elements and process, you can see a complete set of the slides that were presented at the public meeting.
