Kingsland Bypass Project From CR 61/Vacuna Road to West of I-95


GDOT Project #: 0008666
Type: Reconstruction/Rehabilitation
Project Length: 4.25 miles

Condemning Authority: GDOT
Estimated Affected Parcels: 83
Estimated Cost: $49,434,700
Right-of-Way Funds: $4,820,000


Laurel Island Pkwy/Colerain Rd is currently a 2-lane corridor traversing east/west through Camden County, GA. Phase 2 of the West Kingsland Bypass Project would begin at the intersection of SR 40 & Vacuna Rd (end of PI# 0000820) and continue northeasterly along the alignment of Laurel Island Pkwy/Colerain Rd. The bypass continues on a new alignment near the intersection of CR 109, crossing over the railroad and US 17 and then proceeds east on the existing alignment of Colerain Rd to tie into Kingsland Bypass Phase 1 (PI# 0007414) approximately 2,500 feet west of I-95. The typical section will be 2 lanes in each direction with a depressed 32 foot median & rural shoulders from the beginning of the project to Old Still Rd. This typical section matches the typical section used in PI# 0000820. At Old Still Rd, the typical section will change to an urban section with a 20 foot raised median, 5 foot sidewalk on the south side & 10 foot multi-use trail on the north side.

If you have property near Kingsland Bypass from CR 61/Vacuna Road to west of I-95, it’s important to be informed and ready when GDOT gives you an offer for it. While this project is intended to increase capacity and improve safety for the area, the process, construction, and resulting traffic patterns may significantly affect your property. Get prepared by being informed.

Business and Homeowner Concerns

Eminent domain gives the government the ability to take your property for a project that will benefit the public good. To this end, GDOT is required to offer you fair compensation for it. However, GDOT is motivated to purchase property as affordably as possible and may not include other issues, such as relocation expenses and lost business income, in the initial offer. In addition, many GDOT projects involve temporary, permanent, and utility easements, which can be difficult to navigate.

We enlist the assistance of professional surveyors, appraisers, and land engineers to estimate the impacts of the GDOT taking of your property – and we front these costs. Contact us if you believe your property may be affected by GDOT’s plans.

What to Do if Your Property Is Affected

You have rights even though the government can take your land. GDOT has set aside an estimated $4,820,000 for right-of-way acquisition in 2024 for this project. We urge you to consult with an eminent domain attorney prior to accepting any GDOT offer.

Remember: the initial offer is just the beginning as long as you do not accept it. We can help you fight for more. Call 1-888-391-1339, or contact us as soon as possible for a free case evaluation.

We guarantee that we will only take an attorney’s fee if we can increase GDOT’s starting offer amount. At that point, our fee is calculated as a percentage of the increased amount onlyThis means that the initial offer amount is 100% yours, and we’ll even front the costs of fighting your case.


Why are we so confident? There are many reasons, but one of the biggest is that we’ve tripled our clients’ initial offers on average since we’ve been in business.1

There are only a handful of attorneys in GA who practice eminent domain exclusively. And even fewer with DOT experience. That’s why it’s always worth it to get a free case evaluation.

Here’s how it works:

1) Tell us about your situation.

2) We research your property as needed, using DOT maps, our own technology, and experience to see the exact effects.

3) We let you know what we think a fair offer would be. This evaluation is free, and there’s no
pressure or obligation to hire us after.

But please don’t wait to act. Waiting can hurt your case, and the cost is the same: free.
