Henry County Moves Forward with Interchange Design

Atlanta, GA--  Henry County is moving forward with a landscape design to enhance the interchange of I-75 and SR 20 at exit 218, which is considered a main thoroughfare to the Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The Henry County Board of Commissioners awarded Ecos Environmental Design Inc. the contract in the amount of $15,000 to create a design that will enhance both the north and south exits at the interchange. The action came at a regular meeting earlier this month.

Last year, the County received a federal earmark from Congressman Lynn Westmoreland in the amount of $226,380 and later a Gateway Grant from the Georgia Department of Transportation in the amount of $50,000. The funds are to be used for a certain improvements to the interchange, such as a design and landscaping.

The project is part of a larger effort to brand the I-75 and Bruton Smith Parkway interchange as the Gateway to the Speedway.
