People living in the Pleasant Hill community of Macon say they're tired of waiting on changes proposed by the Georgia Department of Transportation.  Tuesday, GDOT present an update on the project which residents say wasn't an update at all.

GDOT project manager, Clinton Ford made the presentation to council members and residents at City Hall.  Residents say it's taking too long for the entire project to start.  The plans include revamping the Pleasant Hill neighborhood and highlighting the area's historic charm. 

Longtime Pleasant Hill resident, Peter Givens, says the Georgia Department of Transportation is giving them the runaround.  The city council approved the project five years ago. 

 Ford says the plans are laid out but not set in stone yet.   According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, mitigation project funding for the Pleasant Hill venture is estimated to cost around ten million dollars.
