Warner Robins Mayor Chuck Shaheen offered an update on various city projects during a brief presentation at a Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce event Thursday morning.
As guest speaker at the December Eggs and Issues gathering, Shaheen updated the crowd of about 150 business and community leaders on a litany of city projects. He discussed the ongoing plans for the city’s new law enforcement center, which will be located at 100 Watson Blvd., and ticked off a host of completed and planned road projects.
Among the planned or proposed road projects Shaheen mentioned were widening work to be done at the intersection of Davis Drive and Watson Boulevard and the city’s first planned roundabout, which will be located on Martin Luther King Drive in the next two years.
Shaheen also said he expected to have news regarding the environmental impact survey for the area proposed for the Georgia-Robins Aerospace Maintenance Project by March. At that point, the city will find out if it can move forward with the first phase of construction, Shaheen said. The initial effort would provide runway access for two new hangars on city-owned land on the northeast side of the base as part of a private-public partnership.
