Operational Improvement Program: GDOT has a program that provides “Quick Fix” projects to improve operations. Once an Operational Improvement Idea has been recognized, analyzed, and considered to be a viable improvement, it passes through the Operational Improvement Committee for approval.

PI 0016443 SR 372/Birmingham Highway at Hickory Flat Road/Birmingham Road

At the October 2018 Operational Improvement Committee meeting, intersection improvements at  Birmingham Crossroads were approved by GDOT to move forward as a project with funding. The concept presented was a mini roundabout (approximately 85′ diameter with mountable center island and outside truck aprons around the corners. The City is working with GDOT to stay involved and updated on the progress and project development. The public information comment period is August 18, 2020 – September 11, 2020. The project can be found on the GDOT Public Outreach Meetings page.

Quick Response Program: GDOT has a program for operational improvements such as turn lane additions that can be implemented in a short period of time and for under $200k. There is also a form available to Suggest a Quick Fix improvement.

PI S015040 SR 372/Crabapple Road at Green Road

This project was implemented in 2019 through the quick response program and funding beyond the quick response improvements has not yet been identified but further improvements are recommended in the Milton Comprehensive Transportation Plan and based on limited construction that was completed with this funding.

The GDOT Design was to install a 500 foot dedicated left turn lane on SR 372/Crabapple Road Northbound to Green Road.  As GDOT was preparing to begin the project, the City of Milton was able to work out additional improvements as part of a Modified City Design to create a Florida T type intersection and separate turn lanes on Green Road. With this intersection control, the left turn off Green Road only yields to Crabapple Road westbound thru and eastbound left turn. Also Green Road has separate left and right turn lanes for 100 feet.

PI S015041 SR 372/Birmingham Highway at Batesville Road
