New road work begins in Peachtree City

The Georgia Department of Transportation will begin work this week on road modifications meant to improve traffic flow on Peachtree City’s northern corridor.

So-called “R-cuts” are being installed at the intersection of Ga. Hwy. 74 and Kedron Drive first, followed by another at Ga. Hwy. 74 and Lexington Pass. The project, which was outlined at the Oct. 18 City Council meeting, involves putting new right-turn and U-turn lanes at busy intersections to allow for more even traffic flow in both directions. Drivers are being asked to use caution in the areas where construction workers are present.

An overview of the plan is at GDOT is also still working on traffic signals along Ga. Hwy 54 following its repaving; no completion date has been announced.
