GADOT Area 3 (Buchanan Office) tells us that construction is currently underway in Whitesburg on updating the roundabout. The construction should last two weeks and make the roundabout operate more efficiently. This is a quick response project in conjunction with Northwest GA Paving Inc valued at around $152,000.00. On April 6th you can expect flagging and paving to begin. At some points a lane might be closed in the area of Hwy 16 and Hwy 5. A 4-Way Stop was added till April 8th. It would appear that crosswalks are being installed along with a concrete barrier. Look for updated pictures soon on Instagram, “The Carrollton Menu” and Snapchat, “TheCityMenus.”
Below is an update from the City of Whitesburg
Please be aware that you will experience a traffic delay at the Highway 5 and Highway 16 roundabout due to resurfacing. This project should last approximately two weeks. Please treat this intersection as a 4-way stop only during the road work.
