GORDON HWY WIDENING TO SUPPORT FT. GORDON GATE
Georgia Department of Transportation just awarded a $14.1 million contract to E.R. Snell Contractor, Inc. for 2.4 miles of widening and reconstruction on Gordon Highway from the future site of Fort Gordon new Gate 6 to Robinson Avenue.
The project will create a new signalized intersection to accommodate anticipated increased traffic volume and changes to Fort Gordon’s access plan. Anticipated completion is March 31, 2021.
The Army will invest $33 million for the new gate and access control road according to Fort Gordon’s Garrison Commander, Colonel Todd Turner.
“As a result of the growth at Fort Gordon over the past five years, and the projected growth over the next five years, the installation, in conjunction with the Georgia Department of Transportation, will construct a new access control point and widen Gordon Highway in support of the new gate,” Turner said. “The new access control point, known as Gate 6, will be located six miles west of Gate 1, and has been optimally located to mitigate the Installation’s expanding traffic requirements to the Army Cyber Headquarters and National Security Agency/Georgia.”
