State Route (SR) 14/US 29/Roosevelt Highway: Bridge Replacement


GDOT Project #: 0013809
Type: Bridge Replacement
Project Length: 0.37 miles
Affected Counties: Fulton
Condemning Authority: GDOT
Estimated Affected Parcels: 6
Estimated Cost: $13,574,715
Right-of-Way Funds: $2,920,000


This GDOT project will replace the existing bridge on SR 14/US 29 between Mallory Road and Welcome All Road. The bridge is 2.6 miles northeast of Union City, crosses over the CSX Railroad, and currently has four (12-foot) lanes. The new bridge will have six lanes — two travel lanes in each direction, a two-way left turn lane, and a southbound right turn lane — with gutters and sidewalks on both sides.

The original bridge was built in 1938 and is in desperate need of replacement. In conjunction with this project, MARTA and GDOT intend to relocate the MARTA station on SR 14 (across the street from the Valero gas station).

Business and Homeowner Concerns

GDOT must juggle competing concerns for each project, from the needs of the city’s roadways, to the preservation of protected land and waterways, to feedback from the community overall. Unfortunately, it is the individual property owner that is often considered last. In fact, the government sometimes constructively takes land from a property owner without notification or compensation — unless you recognize it and fight for everything you may be owed.

Other 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 $2,920,000 to compensate owners affected by the project, but the offers some property owners receive from state officials may amount to far less than what their property is worth. GDOT, like most buyers, is motivated to purchase property as affordably as possible.

We urge you to consult with a skilled eminent domain attorney prior to accepting any GDOT offer.

evaluation today.

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.
