The intersection of Highway 11 and Star Street in Bethlehem is a headache for many traveling through the area, and the Bethlehem council is determined to ease the pain.
The council said that traffic is heavy in the area and cutting across the intersection can add as much as 15 minutes travel time during peak congestion hours.
According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, the intersection does not meet traffic flow requirements needed for installing a traffic light.
The town reviewed bids at its March meeting, for a project that will hopefully make it easier for the GDOT to realize it does need a signal. Bethlehem took no action on choosing a company.
