Oconee County Public Works Director Emil Beshara last week described the upcoming reconstruction and widening of Mars Hill road as “fun,” “challenging” and “painful” in his latest update of the project to the Citizen Advisory Committee on Land Use and Transportation Planning.

Beshara said he expects construction crews to be on the site next month or the month after and to continue working on the project for three years.

As soon as possible, he wants to hold a meeting with the Land Use Committee and other citizens in the county in which a representative of G.P.’s Enterprises Inc. of Auburn, GA, which won the bid for the construction work, answers questions about the construction plans and process.

“There is a lot of community interest in what are we going to see, how are we going to see construction progress,” Beshara said.
