Work crews on behalf of the Georgia Department of Transportation will soon begin work to enlarge the mini-roundabout at state route 138 and Moseley Drive. The intersection — located near the Woodland school cluster — has been a frequent source of residents’ frustration since the mini roundabout’s installation.
SR 138 at Moseley Drive
In a press release from Georgia DOT, the state shares the following:
Quick Response teams will be starting a new project at the intersection of SR 138 at North Mosley Drive. Crews from Piedmont Paving will be installing a newer and much larger roundabout to accommodate the ongoing traffic. The work will take place throughout the summer and should be complete before school resumes in the fall.
According to the state’s website, the project has an allocated budget of $199,999. The state installed the original mini-roundabout in 2016 at a cost of $162,945.
The state’s quick response (QR) program allows the state to implement short-term immediate improvements at costs less than $200,000. QR projects are typically constructed within the existing right of way to accelerate the project’s timeline and construction.
SR 138 Resurfacing
Also on the horizon will be the resurfacing of state route 138 in Henry County. Specifically, the resurfacing project extends between I-75 and the Rockdale County line.
The state presently plans to accept construction bids for the work in November 2022. Road work could begin in early 2023 following a December contract award.
