Isn't that...

The cut through being used because of the horrible shape of Doug Barnard Parkway that's had one lane closed now for about 4 years? Your 1 cent sales tax at work.....

The swamp is trying to reclaim itself.

Messing with Mother Nature has consequences.

We remember when Mr Dan Bowles'Plantation House was still standing on Old Savannah Rd. near Olive Rd. Seems that it even survived the Gordon Hwy project for a while?

Collapsed roads

YES - I can't even recall how many years it has been that 56 Loop, or Dough Bernard Parkway, has been closed due to the cave in of the road. Somewhere in this area there just HAS to be an engineer that will be able to figure out how to correct it - putting up signs, setting out barrels, making announcements of repairs that do not take place - it won't do folks - it won't go away. Taxpayers pay obediently to have things taken care of - this one I think should be sort of on the top of the list - Airport - wastewater treatment plant and then cave in - all in one short stretch into the City of Augusta. Kind of bad advertisement and no improvement in sight - sad - sad but true!

I don't know what is going on

I don't know what is going on with Doug Barnard but it's a crying shame it has been in that shape for more than 5 years. I suspect the lanes that are still open are subject to cave or sink any time.
