Milton Wants Public Comment on Hopewell-Birmingham Intersection
The two concepts being presented include turn lanes and a roundabout.
How would you improve the Hopewell-Birmingham intersection? The city of Milton has some alternatives and wants comments from residents on these proposed plans.
The two concepts being presented as change include turn signals with a traffic signal and a roundabout.
The intersection's lack of left turn lanes causes delays, said Sara Leaders, traffic engineer for the city. Sight distance issues caused by the steep grade also are a problem. And the large number of left turning vehicles on Hopewell as well is a huge issue, she said.
View the concept alternatives for the intersection improvements – and see the current status of the intersection – in the pdf files that accompany this article. Or visit online, where the city plans to add more project information, displays and traffic simulations.
A comment form also can be found on the site that sends results directly to Leaders.
If you prefer personal contact and want to ask questions directly, take advantage of the open house on Wednesday, Nov. 14, from 5-6 p.m. in City Council Chambers at Milton City Hall.
Following the open house, the Milton City Council will hold its monthly work session, during which there will be an agenda item for a presentation on the intersection improvements.
"We hope you will take advantage of one of these opportunities to let the city know your view of the proposals," said Leaders.
