WAYCROSS, Georgia – The Georgia Department of Transportation will activate a new signalized intersection Tuesday, August 3 on US 82/S. Georgia Parkway at US 1/SR 4/Fulford Road about four miles west of the City of Waycross.
While not expected to be in service for the Tuesday morning commute, the signal should be fully functional by mid-day, weather permitting. Local law enforcement will handle traffic control during activations. Message boards will be in place this week near the intersection to alert motorists of this new traffic signal location and activation date.
This operational improvement project is a Quick Response Project. These projects typically cost less than $200,000 and can be completed in a short period of time. The money comes from the state motor fuel tax and is primarily used for small operational safety improvements and maintenance projects on the state route system.
Motorists are always advised to proceed cautiously through intersections, but most certainly so next week during activation and the days to follow as drivers become acclimated to the new signal.
Advisory: Exact time may change due to weather conditions. Motorists are advised to expect delays, exercise caution, and reduce their speed while traveling through work zones, stay alert, and watch for workers. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. Call 511, visit 511ga.org, or download the Georgia 511 app.
