Crews have started working on making alterations to one of Carrollton’s busiest intersections. Construction will be taking place over the next two months at the Maple Street and Presbyterian Avenue intersection.
The City finalized plans earlier this year for what was labeled as a “problem intersection” for Carrollton motorists. See Plans by Clicking Here.
“What we are doing is taking out the traffic light at the intersection of Barnes, Maple, and Alabama Streets, and making it a right-in, right-out intersection,” said City Manager Tim Grizzard. “What that means is drivers will turn right into Maple Street from Alabama Street, and turn right out of Maple Street towards the square.”
Grizzard said a crosswalk signal will be installed across Alabama Street in front of La Trattoria restaurant.
Presbyterian Avenue will be a one-way street from Maple Street into Bradley Street, according to Grizzard.
The intersection changes are expected to be complete by the end of November.
