During their meeting Monday (Feb. 10) the Anderson County Transportation Committee approved plans to build a temporary road from Williams Street to Ridge Court in the Gatewood Subdivision inWilliamston. The temporary gravel road, which will be 24 feet wide and 1,886 feet long, will cost $100,000 to build, according to Terry Bragg, director of operations of Cotransco, the company now engineering projects for the ACTC.
Officials are looking into obtaining easements from Milliken & Company and a private landowner. The proposed road will cross a third property owned by the town.
The ACTC has allocated $425,000 for the project which Bragg said he believes will cover the cost of an arched culvert and redoing the entranceway to the subdivision and building the temporary access road.
