Named the Constitution Road Freight Corridor Improvement project, the roundabout is in response to the ongoing development in the area. CID leaders said they expect the corridor to become even busier with truck traffic over the next few years.
Development will include increasing the intersection’s size, buying adjacent property, making adjustments to property curb cuts, making drainage improvements and widening the road. The project’s financing includes DeKalb County special purpose local option sales tax funds, the CID’s funds and money from the Georgia Transportation Infrastructure Bank.
A public information open house was held last week, and a second one will be held in October to finalize the intersection’s design. Construction is expected to begin next summer.
