East Coweta High gets stop sign at Hwy. 154


Placing a stop sign at the intersection of Ga. Highway 154 and Old Ga. Highway 16 adjacent to the campus of East Coweta High School may not be a permanent fix but it is something that should help make the intersection safer.

The Ga. Dept. of Transportation (DOT) recently installed a stop sign at the intersection to make it a three-way stop and paved a section along Hwy. 154 for a right-turn lane.

The intersection at Hwy. 154 and Old Hwy. 16 at East Coweta High School has been the site of numerous traffic accidents and a fatality. To address the problems with the intersection, the Coweta County Commission on July 23 approved funds to have a survey completed that could lead to state-funded safety improvements.

The unanimous vote in July approved $4,800 to conduct the survey.
