This interchange is a collaborative project between the city of Locust Grove, Henry County, and GDOT. The purpose of the project is to create a new interchange on I-75 in order to relieve congestion at exits 216 and 212. The additional point of access will be created between the SR 155 and Bill Gardner Parkway exits. The interchange is estimated to be completed by 2027.

Business and Homeowner Concerns

The new interchange is needed due to the residential and commercial growth the area is experiencing. Truck traffic in particular is expected to increase amid the ever-growing demand for freight movement between the Port of Savannah and Atlanta. However, local residential and commercial landowners may be significantly impacted by the construction.

Common concerns for home and business owners include:

What to Do if Your Property Is Affected

You have rights even though the government can take your land. GDOT has set aside $9,180,000 to compensate owners affected by the project, but the offers some property owners receive from officials may amount to far less than what their property is worth. The government is motivated to purchase property as affordably as possible.

Consult with one of our skilled eminent domain attorneys prior to accepting any GDOT offer.

We do not take an attorney’s fee unless we increase the government’s offer, and our fee only comes from the increased amount – our no-fee guarantee.2 Further, we advance the costs of fighting your case, and if we’re unable to increase the government’s offer to you, you don’t pay them. We do. That is how confident we are that we can assist you.

Affected Parcels

An estimated 33 parcels of property will be affected by this project. Property owners may lose significant amounts of land, representing significant financial value and usability. For homeowners and commercial property owners in the path of the project, it is critical to understand that the government’s initial offer is just that – initial. We do not recommend you accept the initial offer.

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.
