SR 21 corridor improvements await action and funding | savannahnow.com

A consultant has presented his company’s recommendation to local officials to reduce congestion and improve safety along busy State Route 21.

The corridor is a 10-mile major route for commerce and commuter traffic from the Effingham County line south through Port Wentworth and Garden City, on to Interstate 516 in downtown Savannah. Improvements have been studied for three years as traffic is projected to continue growing.

But finding funding for any improvements, as for so many other local transportation projects, will pose another challenge for the project.

On Wednesday, Jeff Netzinger, an engineering consultant with Hussey, Gay, Bell & DeYoung, presented the firm’s preferred set of improvements out of three alternatives to the Coastal Region Metropolitan Planning Organization board.

The so-called No. 10 alternative would widen the northernmost section from Effingham County to State Route 30 and a portion near I-516.
