Workers with the Georgia Department of Transportation are scheduled to be at the intersection of Georgia Highway 140 and Lower Burris Road on Monday morning, weather permitting, to activate a new traffic signal.
As part of the overall project to improve Highway 140 in Cherokee County, a handful of smaller and relatively easier to complete projects were identified, such as installing traffic signals at key intersections along the route. Putting a traffic signal at the intersection of Highway 140 and Lower Burris was part of a larger intersection improvement project that included widening Highway 140 and adding left turn lanes, according to a GDOT statement.
GDOT workers will be at the intersection at 9 a.m. Monday to complete the project and activate the new signal. Motorists are reminded to use caution when driving through the area.
