GDOT starts ‘Quick Response’ project in Woodstock

A Cherokee County crossroads has qualified for $110,230 in “Quick Response” funding for an intersection improvement project, the Georgia Department of Transportation announced.

Ga. 92 at Neese Road in Woodstock has been designated a high-priority project by the state. It will get an extended left turn lane from eastbound Ga. 92 to enhance safety and improve traffic flow.

Bartow Paving Co. Inc. is expected to complete the work within two weeks, GDOT said. Work will occasionally require lane closures, night work and traffic pacing. Motorists should be alert for advanced warning signs and contractor personnel and vehicles in the work zone.

GDOT’s Quick Response Program supports low-cost operational projects for state roads, officials said. Projects can include restriping, intersection improvements, turn lane additions and extensions, can be implemented in a short period of time, and typically cost less than $200,000.
