This GDOT project will widen State Route 92 from two to four lanes. The project runs from north of State Route 120 (eastern Paulding County) to Old Burnt Hickory Road (western Cobb County), a length of about eight miles. The project will run along the existing highway alignment, beginning from East Paulding Middle School. This is one of several GDOT projects intended to widen State Route 92 from I-20 to I-75.

A typical section of the upgraded roadway will have the following features:

  • Four lanes
  • A raised median
  • Curb and gutter

Note: Intersection roundabouts are planned at Due West Road, Due West Street, and Old Burnt Hickory Road.

Business and Homeowner Concerns

GDOT projects can impact many parcels of properties and their owners, even beyond the planned or intended scope of the project. Locals may have already experienced disruption in the form of utilities being relocated to accommodate construction activities. Will road closures make it impossible for customers to access your business?

Did you know your land can be effectively taken without an official notice or proceedings by the government? It’s called an inverse condemnation, and it happens more than you might think. Any time you have a larger construction project, the possibility of unexpected impact to area properties is real.

Contractor bids open for construction on this project in October 2022, so the disruptions are looming. There are many variables and every client’s situation is unique. These variables can make this a very stressful time – beyond the emotional impact on you and your family.

What to Do if Your Property Is Affected

While fighting a GDOT project is unlikely to be successful, more than $28 million has been set aside to compensate property owners impacted by this portion of the construction. By federal and state law, you are entitled to just compensation for losses you experience due to GDOT’s work.

To safeguard your interests, you should hire an attorney as soon as you become aware that your property may be impacted. There may be years between the announcement of the project and when it actually begins. There may be changes in the scope of that project. But you want an attorney to be safeguarding your interests from the start.

With us, hiring an attorney earlier in the process doesn’t cost you more. We don’t charge by the hour. We only collect an attorney’s fee if we get more for you than the government’s initial offer.2

Our clients receive triple the government’s original offer on average.1 Call 1-888-391-1339 or contact us as soon as possible for a free case evaluation.

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.
