SR 54 & SR 74 Displaced Left Turn (DLT) Intersection Project
The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is implementing a Displaced Left Turn (DLT) project for northbound and southbound 74, that will reduce the number of traffic light phases from eight to four and improve efficiency and safety throughout the 54/74 intersection.
The DLT project will include two right turn lanes for 74 Southbound traffic turning right onto 54 West, as well as a dedicated signal and “no right on red” for those drivers. In conjunction with the DLT project, GDOT will re-signalize the corridor. Highways 54 and 74 are state roads and the entirety of this project is funded directly by GDOT.
UPDATED: 11/4/2022- The DOT informed the City that the Displaced Left-Turn project at the intersection of SR 54 and 74 were in the right-of-way acquisition process. Currently, the DOT has acquired right-of-way from four parcels, two parcels have had offers made (waiting on reply) and three parcels are still outstanding. Reappraisals on the three outstanding parcels are ongoing and anticipated to be complete in mid-December so negotiations on those are on hold for now.
The design of the intersections is basically complete and the time frame to put out to bid is in the “spring”. Staff will give updates along the way as things proceed.
The DLT project is considered by GDOT and by Peachtree City to be the first in a series of necessary steps to continue to address the growing number of Coweta County and other drivers traversing Peachtree City on Hwy 54.
UPDATED 1/24/2020: Information on the Open House held on January 23 by the Georgia Department of Transportation on the plans for the Displaced Left Turn (DLT) can be found on the Engineering/Transportation Plans page. Comments may be provided through Thursday, February 6, 2020, by following the directions listed on the page.
Peachtree City continues to work 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.

Peachtree City’s at the Planterra Way and MacDuff Parkway intersections COMPLETE. 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.
LONG-TERM GDOT PLANS
The GDOT is looking to 2020 and beyond for improvements to the Highway 54/74 Intersection in Peachtree City and will install a Continuous Flow/Dedicated Left Turn Intersection is programmed for 2020/2021. 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.
