In a letter to a group calling itself 'Friends of Forest Hill Road', Holliday saysGeorgia DOT disregarded community objections when the agency advertised in the Macon Telegraph it would beawarding contractsfor the road project.

Holliday says the work, which would widen the street, disregards the needs of people who live in the area. He says his group wants a road that is safer, environmentally cleaner, and more appropriate for its location.

Holliday filed the request for an injunction in the Superior Court of Bibb County.
