NOTICE OF LOCATION AND DESIGN APPROVAL P. I. 731048- NH000-0035-01(033) ROCKDALE COUNTY Notice is hereby given in compliance with Georgia Code 22-2-109 and 32-3-5 that the Georgia Department of Transportation has approved the Location and Design of this project. The date of location and design approval is: March 24, 2021 The project proposes to replace the existing diamond interchange at SR 138/SR 20 over I-20 with a new single point interchange configuration. The project is located 100% in Rockdale County, located within Land District 16 and Georgias General Militia District (GMD) 476. A portion of the project is located within the City of Conyers. The total length of project is approximately 0.53 mile along SR 138/SR 20 beginning 1700 feet south of the eastbound I-20 interchange ramps and ending approximately 800 feet north of the westbound I-20 interchange ramps. Along I-20, the project begins approximately 2400 feet west of the existing SR138/SR20 interchange ramp and ends approximately 5800 feet east of the existing SR 138/SR 20 interchange ramp. The proposed project consists of reconstructing the existing six lane bridge for SR 138/SR 20 over I-20 with a new two-span eight lane bridge that spans both I-20 and the new westbound access ramp from Dogwood Drive. The new bridge will consist of four through lanes with exclusive dual-left turn lanes in each direction. A raised sidewalk is also provided along both sides of the bridge. Improvements are also proposed for Dogwood Drive on the north side of the interchange, including a proposed single lane roundabout at the intersection of Dogwood Drive and the western entrance to Conyers Plaza. Additional improvements include a new slip ramp from the Dogwood Drive roundabout that would provide direct access to I-20 westbound. The slip ramp would require a grade separation with the I-20 westbound off ramp to SR 138/SR 20 and travel under the new SR 138/SR 20 bridge before merging with the westbound on ramp from SR 138/SR 20.
