Committee Votes To Remove U.S. 441 Widening And Bishop Bypass In Oconee County From Federal Transportation Planning Documents

Shift To State Funding

The Technical Coordinating Committee of MACORTS, the regional transportation planning organization, recommended on Wednesday that the widening of U.S. 441 with the bypass of Bishop be removed from its planning documents.

That action follows a decision by the Georgia Department of Transportation to use exclusively state funds, rather than state and federal funds, to finance the project.
