Crews are standing by to finish a realignment project at the Maple Street and Presbyterian Avenue intersection that has become a point of frustration for many Carrollton motorists. City Manager Tim Grizzard says workers are only waiting for the weather to cooperate before they will be able to move forward with the final steps of the project.
“We only need five dry days above 50 degrees, and we will be able to finish the project,” said Grizzard.
Grizzard said that all machinery needed to complete the project is at the site and ready to finish the job as soon as weather permits.
“All the machinery is ready to go, and I’ve spoke to the contractor, and he says we are the next job on his list,” said Grizzard.
Paving for the project is being spearheaded by Jackson Paving, a Douglasville based company.
The City finalized plans last year for what was labeled a “problem intersection” for Carrollton motorists. See Plans by Clicking Here.
The new design is aimed at alleviating the busy intersection’s traffic flow problems.
The City has removed a traffic signal at the intersection and added a crosswalk signal across Alabama Street in front of La Trattoria restaurant.
Once the project is complete, Presbyterian Avenue will become a one-way street from Maple Street into Bradley Street, according to Grizzard.
