On Monday, October 25, 2021, crews will begin replacing the sidewalk on Martin Luther King Blvd, from Colerain Road to the City of Kingsland city limits. This work is anticipated to take approximately sixty (60) days, depending on weather conditions.
Sidewalk replacement should occur on weekdays between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and all residents and travelers in this area should exercise caution when driving in this area and be aware of the construction work taking place. Pedestrians are encouraged to avoid the sidewalk during construction hours if possible.
This $154,000 project will be completed with Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) VII funds. SPLOST VII ceased collection in June 2019. Camden County voters approved SPLOST VIII in March 2019. This one-cent sales tax is paid by all residents and visitors that purchase goods in Camden County. SPLOST VIII began collection in July 2019 and concludes in June 2025.
