The Georgia Department of Transportation is seeking feedback about a proposed solution to improve operations and reduce crash frequency and severity at one Gordon County intersection.
The project on Highway 53 at Brownlee Mountain Road and Plainville Road would see the installation of a stop-controlled Restricted Crossing U-Turn at the intersection.
Also called an R-CUT or Reduced Conflict U-Turn, it is designed to where traffic on the minor road must turn right. Left turn and through movements from the minor road are accomplished through the use of a downstream U-turn.
Left and right turns would still be permitted on the major road.
Public comment is being accepted until May 5.
