Highway 16 & 54 intersection to get traffic signal

The agreement to install a much needed traffic signal at the intersection of Ga. highways 54 and 16 on the south side of Sharpsburg has been formalized between Ga. Dept. of Transportation (GDOT) and Coweta County.

The Coweta County Commission last week approved a GDOT request to have the traffic light installed, though the timeline for the installation has not been set.

County Development & Engineering Director Wayne Kennedy in a March 2 memo noted the numerous attempts by the county to have a traffic signal installed at the Sharpsburg location. Hwy. 16 is an increasing thoroughfare linking Newnan and I-85 to Griffin and I-75.

Kennedy said GDOT had now provided the county with paperwork that signifies a request to have that installation occur.

Increasing traffic volumes along Hwy. 16 and GDOT’s response to it is easily evidenced just a few miles to the east in Senoia, where the intersection at with Broad Street/Luther Bailey Road is currently undergoing work that will see the installation of a traffic signal and left turn lanes. That work began in late 2009 and is expected to be completed later this year.
