BACK IN TIME

Jan. 13, 1979

A final decision on which of 13 different alternates will be chosen for the relocation of mainline Augusta railroads is still many months away, a planning official said Friday.

About 300 people appeared at a public hearing Thursday night to voice their feelings on the best choice for rerouting the Seaboard Coastline, Georgia and Southern railroads from downtown Augusta.

According to Dayton Sherrouse, executive director of the Richmond county Planning Commission, the state will have a say as well as federal transportation authorities.
