The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY - KAREN HUPPERTZ FOR THE AJC

The Du­luth City Coun­cil re­cently ap­proved plans for a new traf­fic sig­nal at the in­ter­sec­tion of Rogers Bridge Road and Main Street. Im­prove­ments to the in­ter­sec­tion are in­cluded in the city’s cur­rent SPLOST list in an agree­ment with Gwin­nett where the county will pay 81 per­cent of the project cost and Du­luth the re­main­ing 19 per­cent.

The city eval­u­ated three po­ten­tial so­lu­tions to im­prove or mit­i­gate the sight dis­tance is­sues at the in­ter­sec­tion.

Af­ter weigh­ing all the fac­tors in­clud­ing price, time to com­plete the pro­jects, and pub­lic in­put, the pre­ferred op­tion is the traf­fic sig­nal. The project will now move for­ward with ne­go­ti­at­ing the scope, sched­ule, and fee for the re­main­ing de­sign.
