Twiggs County / Cities of Danville & Jeffersonville Planning

Twiggs County / Cities of Danville & Jeffersonville Planning

In Fiscal Year 2004, the Georgia Department of Transportation contracted with the Middle Georgia Regional Commission (formerly RDC) to compile a sidewalk survey database for the Cities of Jeffersonville and Danville. The survey consisted of identifying sidewalk condition, sidewalk surface construction material, sidewalk width, beginning and end points, compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), etc. as well as creating a base map of the city’s sidewalk network.

Additionally, the following observations were made from the survey regarding bicycle and pedestrian-friendly resources within the two communities: availability of pedestrian crossings, bicycle racks, trash cans, street lighting, greenspace; connectivity to downtown merchants, points of interest, schools, neighborhood subdivisions; areas served by good sidewalk network; areas where sidewalk network requires improvement; and finally, areas where connectivity of the network should be expanded.

Through funding assistance made available by the Georgia Department of Transportation in FY2009, the City of Jeffersonville was able to prepare a Pedestrian Facility/Sidewalk Infrastructure Improvement Plan. This plan provides local officials with a guide for current and future sidewalk maintenance, as well as recommendations for expansion to major activity centers and neighborhoods not currently served by pedestrian facilities.
