What's better, a roundabout or turn lanes with a traffic signal? Milton will let city residents study and comment on two concepts for improvements to the Hopewell-Birmingham roads intersection late this afternoon in an open house. City Council will immediately discuss the intersection in a work session that follows the open house.
Public Meetings Wednesday, Nov. 14
- 5-6 p.m. – Open House
- 6 p.m. – Milton City Council Work Session
- Milton City Council Chambers
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.
For more information on this project on the public meeting, email Sara Leaders or call her at 678-242-2559.
