The new year brings new projects, and Peachtree City residents will be seeing a lot of activity in the Highway 54 West corridor in 2018.  Peachtree City is working closely with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) to ensure that the intersections and traffic control devices are performing as designed to maximize traffic flow on our highways, and we are committed to keeping the traffic flow for our businesses and residents a top priority in the coming years.  

This year:

1. 2017 SPLOST.  Peachtree City has already begun work on the Highway 54 intersections at Planterra Ridge/Home Depot/Wal-Mart and at MacDuff Parkway.  Work will increase turn lanes to help the side streets flow and eliminate the split-phase traffic signals that increase the wait time for cars on Highway 54.  Work on these intersections will be performed primarily at night.  A pedestrian/multi-use bridge near the western border of town is also included in the SPLOST to increase  golf cart access between the developments north and south of the highway. The design/build contract for this project has already been awarded.   View the full SPLOST Projects List

2. HWY 54 PAVING.  The GDOT has announced their intention to repave Highway 54 from the Coweta/Fayette County line through Fayetteville.  This will have a short-term negative impact on traffic, but the City is working with the GDOT to have the project begin at the eastern end in Fayetteville, working toward Peachtree City in the late summer/early fall.  The City will also work to coordinate intersection improvements in the corridor with the paving to minimize the disruptions to traffic in the area.

4. LONG-TERM GDOT PLANS.  The GDOT is looking beyond 2018 toward improvements to the Highway 54 traffic in Peachtree City.  They have announced that the conversion of the Hwy 54/74 intersection to a Continuous Flow Intersection is programmed for 2020.  This design can significantly increase the traffic volume that an intersection can handle.  View an example of a proposed Continuous Flow Intersection planned for Florida.
