The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) will break ground Friday on a new building for its District Six Office in northwest Georgia. The groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for 2 p.m. this Friday, March 16. It will take place at the project site adjacent to 21 Voestapline Drive, in the city of White, Georgia.
Construction on the new building, 8 miles north of the current District Six office, starts immediately. It is expected to take 10 months to complete.
GDOT District Six operates and maintains the state transportation system for the 17 counties of Northwest Georgia, including Dade. The current headquarters, located south of Cartersville, has been in operation for almost 60 years. The new structure will provide much-needed improvements to technology and accessibility.
The Georgia Department of Transportation has seven district offices that operate and maintain the state transportation system at the local level. Each district has a district engineer who plans, organizes and directs district activities. Districts are subdivided into area offices that are overseen by an area engineer.
