After another county employee was injured in the second wreck in eight days at Hwy. 211 and Barrow Park Drive, a solution to a nagging transportation trouble spot is in the works.
Barrow County Commission Chairman Danny Yearwood announced Tuesday night that county engineering department manager Darrell Greeson had worked all weekend to design a left turn lane on Hwy. 211 at the entrance to the county’s new criminal justice center.
And Greeson announced in his presentation that the job could be accomplished quickly and inexpensively following his plan’s approval by the Georgia Department of Transportation.
He estimated the cost of the improvement as no more than $130,000.
Yearwood said once the costs are determined, the board of commissioners would decide from where to take the funds.
