Intersection Changed To A 3-Way Stop
Monday, 02 March 2015 14:17
Motorists traveling Orchard Hill Road may have noticed new street signs today.
County works crews installed signage for a new three-way intersection at Orchard Hill Road and Denson Road last week. The stop signs were uncovered today, according to County Public Works Superintendent Joe Reed.
Law enforcement officials asked the county commissioner to install the stop signs and reduce speed in the area.
Sheriff Mark Schrader and Georgia State Patrol Post 38 Commander Scott Thompson want to prevent another fatal accident. A car struck and killed a 4-year-old walking on that road last June. "Both Chattooga County Deputies and Georgia State Troopers were able to recognize that this stretch of roadway has a high volume of traffic in the early morning and evening hours. During the school year there are bus stops along this same route which increase the number of vehicles and concerns with the limited site distances in certain areas. We both agreed that with the close proximity of the residences, the nature of the roadway and poor visibility in a number of areas have been contributing factors in some if not all of the crashes along the roadway," Trooper Thompson said.
