Mammoth Cave

Mammoth Cave in Kentucky is so big, it has it’s own zipcode. Half way between Nashville and Louisville Ky, it is a little north of Bowling Green Kentucky. According to their web-site, the first person to explore Mammoth Cave did so 40 centuries ago, and the cave was lost to even the American Indian for nearly 2000 years before approx. 1800, European settlers once again began to explore the cave. Mapping the cave became an obsession for German geologist Max Kamper in 1908. Read more at the National Park Service at www.nps.gov/maca

Little known nor long remembered is the Battle of Perryville, near Lexington Kentucky.

Both sides were scouting fressh water for their troops and horses when they met near Perryville. Nearly 900 Union soldiers and over 500 confederate died in what some call one of the bloodiest battles of the War between the States. Read more at Wikipedia

Lawrenceville Roofing

If you are in need of shingle roofing for your home, we hope you will consider giving Buckeighty Roofing a call. Our roofing experts have been in the roofing business for almost 20 years, and have experience not just with roofing but with home construction too. Since very little new home construction is happening we have more time to spend to grow our roofing business.

With the recent hail storms in Georgia and periods of new home construction where the roofs are older and less resistant to hail and wind damage, our roofing division has been very busy. We have also dispatched crews to install vinyl windows and siding, but we are doing more roofing than anything. But with our experience in home construction, Atlanta roof consumers have been able to rely on the Buckeighty name for roofing whenever the need arises.

We woud hope you would prefer to deal with a company that has been in the roofing business in the Atlanta area and avoid companies that roll through Georgia when they think they can make a quick buck.There are several roofing companies in our area and we hope Buckeighty Roofing is one that you will keep in mind. So for Lawrenceville roofing needs, visit our web-site at

Salem Road Zoning

Salem Road and Route 162 in Georgia from I-20 to Brown Bridge Road travels through Rockdale County Ga and Newton County Georgia.  The Salem Road Corridor Overlay, or SRCO was created by Rockdale County to maintain and improve aesthetics along the corridor.  New zoning concepts for Rockdale County such as mixed use commercial and residential with setasides for parks and recreation were created for use with the Salem Road Overlay.

One aesthetic point was the glaring and ugly growth of Hwy 138 / Ga 20 with unlimited signage in terms of heighth and square footage.  The Salem Road Overlay addressed these issues with a uniform guideline that mandates lower signs and incorporates architectural standards into the signage construction criteria.

Salem Road Corridor Association participated in the community driven process of planning for widening of Rt 162 with the county and state planners and the lead engineering firm.

Salem Road

Newton County Georgia, Rockdale County Georgia.  The Salem Road Corridor Association was a key contributor for the design and production of the Salem Road Corridor Overlay, a progressive and modern zoning ordinance for Rockdale County Georgia that improves aesthetics and provides for smart growth and a balance between commerical, residential and industrial zoning requirements.

The Water Wars – June 29, 2011

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday June 28, 2011 overturned a 2-year-old decision barring use of Lake Lanier water by Atlanta and other municipalities.

The original 2009 ruling by Senior U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson found it was illegal for the Corps of Engineers to draw water from Lake Lanier to meet the needs of 3 million metro Atlanta Georgia residents.

The new ruling by a three judge panel released the Army Corps of Engineers from judicial mandate concering water use and allocation, instead infering that the USACE should make the final decision.

One interesting point of law overturned by the appeal was the original Judge’s assertion that the reservoir was never intended to supply fresh water to Georgia municipalities. Some assert that the original federal legislation authorizing construction of the Buford Dam, which created Lake Lanier, did not list freash water supply as intended use.

In his original ruling, the Judge opposing fresh water for the Atlanta region contended that Lake Lanier water was all to be held for flood control, used for power generation, or sent downstream for use by Florida and Alabama. The specific legislative uses are flood control, power generation and navigation.

Constitutionally, the Federal Government plays a role in disputes between states, in this case between Georgia, Florida and Alabama.

Salem Road Corridor

The Salem Road Corridor zoning district extends along Salem Road from I-20 south to the Newton County line. The Salem Road Corridor Association extends into Newton County incorporating subdivisions in both Rockdale and Newton County Georgia. The Salem Road Widening Project stretches from I-20 south to Brown Bridge Road where ground is breaking for the new Wal-Mart store in Newton County.

Salem Road extends slightly north of I-20 in Rockdale County past the Dogwood Connector to Old Covington Highway where Salem Road becomes Sigman Road. Even long time residents think of Sigman Road which loops from the Salem Road exit of I-20 around to its own exit six miles to the west. But the Salem Road corridor is on what is strictly called the Salem Road exit of I-20, or exit 84.

Rockdale County and Newton County Exit Numbers

  • 78 – Sigman Road
  • 80 – West Avenue (Klondiike)
  • 82 – 138 (Georgia Highway 20, Stockbridge Highway, Old McDonough Rd, Horsepark)
  • 84 – Salem Road (the Other Sigman Road exit)
  • 88 – Almon Road (Crowell Road)
  • 90 – 278 – the beginning of the Covington Ga Strip
  • 92 – Alcovy Road – near City Pond
  • 94 – Hazlebrand – Home Depot and Walmart in Newton County

Salem Road Widening Project

In 2007 a study with the State of Georgia, Engineering consultants and the community around Salem Road outlined plans to widen Salem Road in Rockdale County and Newton County Georgia to six lanes from I20 south to Brown Bridge Road. The road is to be rerouted slightly west at Salem Campground and the old cemetary around Spring Road. More information is at Salem Road Corridor.
