More than a year and a dozen accidents later, a left turn lane from Hwy. 211 onto Barrow Park Drive has been approved.
Last month, county engineer Darrell Greeson presented plans for the turn lane at a county commission meeting. Greeson estimated the project, once approved by the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), could be completed for no more than $130,000.
GDOT has now signed off on the project.
