MOBILE, Ala. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at West Point Project announced today that the project’s operations and maintenance contractor, East O&M, will begin the seasonal maintenance of the Government property line around the reservoir will begin a boundary line inspection along the perimeter of West Point Dec. 7, 2020.
The annual boundary line inspection will not require road or park closures. The contractor will begin work on Liberty Hill Road, and progress northward toward Franklin, Georgia. After completing some 66 miles of property line, the work will end just north of Bob Perguson Road, off U.S. Highway 27 in Heard County, GA. Subdivisions, neighborhoods, and major roads adjacent to public land in these areas include: Liberty Hill Road, The Retreat, Indian Bend, Bevis Road, South River Road and GA Highway 100. The work will continue throughout the winter months.
During the inspection, we ask the public to drive safely as contractor vehicles will be parked near road shoulders with signs stating boundary maintenance. East O&M employees wear fluorescent orange or yellow vests and hard hats displaying their company’s logo.
In addition, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Park Rangers will be inspecting portions of the property line during the coming weeks. Park Rangers will be in uniform. The purpose of these inspections is to identify any encroachments on public land and to ensure the line is properly marked.
