As promised, CBS-46’s Adam Murphy has stayed with the story of how the Howell Mill Widening hell project has gone nowhere fast. Look here (link don’t work so great no more) for the video from May 21 titled: Construction Continues On Howell Mill. Thank you, CBS-46 and Adam Murphy for continuing to cover this immensely frustrating situation.

From a May 13, 2008 email to the City’s Public Works/Transportation Dept. about the completion of the Howell Mill Rd. widening project:
We have been working diligently to ensure that the project moves toward completion. However, we are still in the utility relocation phase due to conflicting schedules in coordination with Bellsouth and Georgia Power to relocate utility lines and remove old utility poles. A detailed update will be published on Friday of this week.
Thanks for your interest and assistance with keeping the BPNA informed.

The thing is, you can paint stuff and shuffle utility poles all on Howell Mill Road ’til the cows come home, but how is that supposed to ease the massive car congestion without adding any additional lanes?
