Modern Roundabouts in Georgia

At the request of the Georgia Department of Transportation, on November 14th the Board of Commissioners approved Letters of Support for the Department to further study the use of modern roundabouts at the following intersections: SR 211 at Old Hog Mountain Road, SR 211 at County Line Auburn Road, SR 211 at Dee Kennedy Road, and SR 124 at Old Hog Mountain Road. In accordance with current policy, the Department is required to consider the use of roundabouts as an alternative for intersections that have been identified as needing safety improvements. When designed properly based upon local conditions, modern roundabouts have been shown to reduce overall vehicle crashes by 35% and to reduce injury crashes by 76%.  

For more detailed information on the use of modern roundabouts as an intersection safety improvement alternative, please read the below presentation prepared by the Georgia Department of Transportation.
