26 - 2 General Intersections

Project Details

Rebuilding the intersection to include flashing yellow arrow signal heads for the left turn movements and back plates on all signal heads to improve visibility;  Permissive left turn prohibitions on movements with high crash experience during peak hour traffic; Restriping the pavement to improve sight distance for the northbound and southbound lanes; and Restriping the pavement to include one receiving lane for northbound traffic and creating a short two-way left turn lane to accommodate midblock left turns into the YMCA and other driveways along Hawthorne Avenue just north of Oglethorpe Avenue. 

Project Updates

M&C approved the Project Concept on July 2, 2019.  Preliminary Design documents are underway, along with coordination with Georgia Power. M&C requested additional design work be done on the Hawthorne from Prince Ave approach to the intersection.  The additional design investigation work has delayed the project by approximately 9 months.
