The newly constructed roundabout at the intersection of State Route 81 and Bold Springs Road will be open to traffic on Tuesday, March 13, 2018.

According to a press release from the Georgia Department of Transportation, crews will begin working on striping the lanes at 9 a.m. tomorrow and expects to have traffic flowing in final configuration by 2 p.m. that day. This roundabout replaces the former 4-way stop at that intersection.

“Roundabouts have demonstrated substantial safety and operational benefits compared to other forms of intersection control, with reductions in fatal and injury crashes of from 60-87 percent,” Georgia DOT noted in the press release.
