In October 2009 the City of Milton received approval from the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) to proceed with the process, started by Fulton County, of redesigning this intersection.
Currently the existing intersection of SR 372 Birmingham Highway and Providence/New Providence Road is an unsignalized 4-way intersection. Both SR 372 and Providence/New Providence Road are two-lane roads. The existing intersection does not have separate left or right turn lanes. The lack of controlled turning movements and increasing traffic volumes contribute to congestion along the SR 372 corridor.
The City of Milton has determined that improving the capacity and alleviating congestion at this intersection requires immediate attention and therefore, has given this projects high priority status.
The project consists of realigning the intersection of SR 372 and Providence/New Providence approximately 300’ to the north of the existing intersection. The realignment is such that the intersecting skew angle with SR 372 is 80 degrees, which will improve the vertical sight distance along SR 372. The existing non-signalized 4-way intersection will be replaced with a roundabout. The overall plan for improvements to this intersection can be viewed by clicking HERE.
Public Involvement started in January 2010, a series of Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) meetings were held to discuss project issues and concerns. As a result, a preferred alternative was selected, designed and presented to the public at a Public Information Open House that was held in April 2010.
