Hybrid crossing coming to Rockaway Road in Fayette County

A hybrid crossing beacon will let pedestrians and golf carts cross Rockaway Road next to the Somerby senior living complex and Meade Field in southern Peachtree City. On Thursday, Sept. 4, the City Council of Peachtree City approved $94,140 for installation of the device, which will be the first of its kind in the city and consists of a button-activated lighted signal and a crosswalk. Completion of the crossing will take 12-14 weeks. Interim City Manager Jon Rorie said Somerby will cover the cost.
