Fayette County, Georgia — The intersection of Tyrone Road and Flat Creek Trail will be converted to a traffic signal-controlled intersection on Friday, December 8, 2023. The goal is to alleviate congestion and delay times during morning and afternoon peak hours.
The change from the existing all-way stop to a traffic signal is based on a Traffic Engineering analysis conducted by Pond & Company. As a result of the study, a signalized intersection will provide acceptable level-of-service for the foreseeable future without the addition of turning lanes, although they may be required as part of a larger project as growth in the area continues.
Lumin8 Transportation Technologies, LLC, installed the signal. Over the next few days it will operate in red blink mode to test the equipment. Variable message boards and minor changes to road striping will be placed on all approaches to notify drivers of the pending change.
