Board approves $1.35 million bid for intersection

The Henry County Board of Commissioners voted Jan. 4 to approve a $1,350,865.60 bid for construction of a roundabout at Hwy. 138 and Hemphill Road. Construction is expected to take about a year, according to county officials. Commissioners pointed out that this would not be a “mini” roundabout like the one nearby at Moseley Road, but more like the one almost complete at Hwy. 20 and East Lake Road. The Hemphill intersection is one that county officials have considered dangerous and in need of improvement.
