      Preventing "turtle" trouble for kids

      If you've ever been to Turtle Park in recent months, you'll notice there's a lot of construction going on close to where kids play. But the question many are asking is, is this area safe?

      If you've ever been to Turtle Park in recent months, you'll notice there's a lot of construction going on close to where kids play.

      But the question many are asking is, is this area safe?

      And is the area completely secure?

      A FOX 31 reporter found the entrance into the construction area unsecured, so we wanted to get your opinion on the safety risks.

      One viewer says "anything anything can be over there and it's not safe for an eight year old or any kind of child to go over there and just wonder."

      We reached out to the Georgia Department of Transportation about the issue, but our phone calls were not returned.

      The bridge has been under construction for about a year.
