Flood mitigation, safety top concerns at Pleasant Ridge Road planning meeting


A March 23 meeting at the Marquette Community Center gathered public input that will help the city of Marquette and Clayton County Secondary Roads plan for the reconstruction of Pleasant Ridge Road from Marquette to the top of the hill. Clayton County Engineer Rafe Koopman, who led the meeting, said his goal is to make that stretch of road safer, while the city hopes to reduce flooding in its Twin Bluffs neighborhood.

Clayton County Engineer Rafe Koopman stressed the meeting was just the beginning of the project. It could be five to 10 years before any road reconstruction or flood mitigation efforts take place.
