DEAR EDITOR:

A recent Saturday’s Cherokee Tribune front page story on a $4 million Georgia Department of Transporation project is exactly why we residences and businesses don’t want GDOT messing up our lives for years.

The project is also a Ga. Hwy. 20 project at Ga. Hwy. 108 in western Cherokee County. This is a typical disruption of people’s lives on all GDOT projects.

Facts — this $4 million project is only one-half mile long. hat’s the distance on Ga. 20 from Hube Turner Road east to Tractor Supply Store.

They estimate this little half mile GDOT project will take at least two years. Do you know one project GDOT that has ever been done that didn’t take longer and cost more than they said? I don’t.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to cringe at what their plans for Ga. 20 will do to their invasion and occupation of Ga. 20 through Lathemtown.

We need to loudly protest their invasion of our peaceful old community and ruining our lives for years and years.

Protest or not, it's a done deal. Highway 20 will be 4 lanes just like Highway 41 in Cobb County. Think what that will do to not only Lathemtown all the communities in East Cherokee. Can you say Bulldozed.
