The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY - JILL HOWARD CHURCH FOR THE AJC

Fayette County has de­cided to in­stall a round­about at the in­ter­sec­tion of An­ti­och Road and Goza Road, only days af­ter mak­ing it a four-way stop.

The Board of Com­mis­sion­ers voted 5-0 to au­tho­rize the project af­ter traf­fic en­gi­neers study­ing the site pre­sented new data at the Nov. 9 board meet­ing. A re­port by Heath & Lineback es­ti­mated that a round­about would pro­vide an 83 per­cent re­duc­tion in crashes in­volv­ing se­ri­ous in­jury or fa­tal­ity.

The ap­prox­i­mately $1 mil­lion to in­stall the round­about was al­ready bud­geted in the county’s Spe­cial Pur­pose Lo­cal Op­tion Sales Tax project list. How­ever, plans won’t be sub­mit­ted for an­other four months and con­struc­tion will take at least a year to com­plete.
