The cart path tunnel underneath Ga. Highway 74 at Paschall Road is now officially open.

The tunnel structure itself has been finished since the widening of Hwy. 74 from two to six lanes was completed last year. But the city had to go in behind the project to attach the cart path approaches on both sides of the tunnel.

This turned out to be a more lengthy effort than originally anticipated because of right of way issues involving not just the tunnel but the stretch of path that goes northward from the tunnel toward The Avenue shopping center. Read More»
