Memory Lane: February 20, 1991


From the February 20, 1991 edition of The Forest-Blade:

Bypass selected by DOT
Georgia Dept. of Transportation has approved the “Alternate A” plan for a highway bypass for Swainsboro. The bypass would be west of Swainsboro and would consist of a two-lane rural roadway on a four-lane right of way. The decision is announced within the legal columns of this issue of The Blade. “Alternate A” was one of several plans suggested to provide the free flow of traffic through or around Swainsboro as part of the proposed Developmental Highway System, which would provide Interstate-type highways to rural sections of Georgia now not served by the Federal Interstate System.

Official opening
Taking part in the ribbon cutting ceremonies for opening of the new Hardee’s restaurant are Milton Gray, Ezra Price, Robert Wiggins, owner, Vicki Messex, area manager, Roy Kilpatrick, Ellen Barrett, manager, Jeanette Hall, Bob Wiggins, owner, Frank Canady, Roy Thompson, and Richard McNeely.
