Georgia will appeal a court ruling that voids a construction contract for the parkway leading to former President Jimmy Carter's planned presidential library in Atlanta, a Georgia transportation commissioner said. Dan Lee, Carter's chief of staff, said that it would be "almost impossible" to continue the library project without the parkway. Carter Presidential Library Inc. would have to build the road if the state doesn't build it, he said. Opponents of the road contend that its construction would spoil the neighborhoods and parks through which it would run.
