DAWSONVILLE, Ga. — The Georgia Department of Transportation (DOT) will host an open house Tuesday, May 15, from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. at Riverview Elementary School to give the public a look at a new design for the intersection of Dawson Forest Road and state Route (SR) 9.
The purpose of the proposed project is to enhance traffic operations and reduce crash frequency. There are two intersections on SR 9 and both provide right-turn access to Dawson Forest Road via a connector street. This project will update the current unsignalized intersections by constructing two independent single-lane roundabouts.
The meeting will be an informative public meeting and citizens in attendance will learn more about the plans for the future roundabouts on state Route (SR) 9 and Dawson Forest Road.
Citizens will be able to view a layout and also speak with Georgia DOT engineers and staff to provide answers to any questions they may have.
