Traffic light on Hwy 78 at Publix on Loganville City Council meeting agenda Monday

The City of Loganville will have its May 2021 City Council Work Session at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, May 10, 2021, at City Hall located at 4303 Lawrenceville Road. One item on the agenda for discussion is a traffic light on Highway 78 at the entrance to the Loganville Town Center Shopping Center where the Loganville Publix is located.

“The light would utilize the road between Chili’s and Starbuck’s and the entrance to the Publix shopping center across the street,” said Robbie Schwartz, spokesman for the City of Loganville. “We had a zoom meeting with GDOT officials Friday and they were open to the idea of partnering with the city on the project.”

Schwartz said more data analysis needs to be done, however, before anything can be finalized. There is some support for the traffic light among Loganville citizens who have long complained about the difficulty in getting out of the shopping center in traffic, especially for anybody turning left. But others believe the light would be too close to the traffic light at the Logan Drive entrance in front of the Home Depot.
