ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany's Broad Avenue bridge was the number one topic at a public workshop of the Dougherty Area Regional Transportation Study.  Only 8 people showed up for the Dougherty County update on the Long Range Transportation Plan.

The study team is gathering opinions on projects for roads and transportation in Dougherty and Lee Counties for the next 25-years.

Transportation Planning Project Management's Mary Huffstetler said "We want the public to have a chance to look at the recommendations, and let us know if they are supporters of the plan. Or have any comments or suggestions."

Another public hearing was held at the Lee County Courthouse Tuesday afternoon.

You can take a look at the long range plan at the five Dougherty County libraries or the city Planning services office.

DARTS will continue to gather public thoughts on transportation plans through November 4th.
