The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is asking for public input on a new truck route between McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill, Tennessee.

An open house will be held Tuesday, September 11, at 4 o'clock at the McCaysville Church of God. 

GDOT says this project will improve State Route 5 by resurfacing the road and building wider shoulders.

The proposal includes a new two-lane truck route along the Ocoee River and existing railroad.
