Learn more at the October 18 City Council Meeting

The Georgia Department of Transportation will soon begin working on intersections along Highway 74 North to address long-term traffic growth between Peachtree City and Fairburn.

Details about these improvements will be presented to the Peachtree City Mayor and Council during the October 18 City Council Meeting by representatives of the Highway 74 North Gateway Coalition.  This group, which includes representatives from Peachtree City, Tyrone, Fayette County, and Fairburn, have been developing a plan to protect the Highway 74 N corridor between Highway 54 and Interstate 85.

A major component of the plan includes improvements at non-signalized intersections on Highway 74 North to maximize efficiency in the corridor and reduce the need to widen the highway.  Intersection options include the Green T (currently in use at Highway 54 W at The Overlook), the Displaced Left Turn planned at the Highway 54/74 intersection, and R-Cut intersections, which will be used at Kedron Drive South and Lexington Pass/Senoia Road.    

The Gateway Coalition originally presented their findings during the Peachtree City Council Retreat session on March 6.  Follow the links below to see the GDOT’s plans for Kedron Drive and Lexington Pass, and a video showing how R-Cut intersections operate in both rural and urban environments.
