Guy Herring has been a regular visitor to Bethlehem council meetings in recent months.
The representative of McFarland, Dyer and Associates was back again Monday night to give the latest of a round of updates concerning the intersection improvements at Hwy. 11/ Star Street.
“We’ve had two rounds of reviews with GDOT,” Herring said. “We just submitted the third review last week.”
Herring did inform mayor Sandy McNab and council members that a 16-foot turn lane would be needed coming off Hwy. 11. Currently a 12-foot lane is in place.
“This is for the turning radius of the tractor-trailers,” Herring said. “It will keep them from jumping the curb and damaging the infrastructure.”
Final traffic signal plans are still being worked on.
Much of the process has gone from the GDOT office in Gainesville to the one in Atlanta, Herring said, signifying more progress.
Herring will update the council once again at next month’s meeting.
