I live of Pat Colwell Rd. and travel the road daily. I am still trying to figure out just what is the improvement that is being touted in the newspaper.The big traffic delay is from Pat Colwell vehicles turning right and left onto Murphy Hwy and vehicles from Blairsville turning left onto Pat Colwell. A mickey mouse turn lane from Murphy Hwy onto Pat Colwell and from Pleasant Hill Rd onto Murphy is totally useless.

The tiny turn lane, nore of a wide strip of asphalt from Pat Colwell going into Blairsville is totally ridiculous.

The only thing that has been accomplished so for is a place for GDOT employees to park their trucks and stand around all day with their hands in their pockets and drinking coffee from Hughes.I counted 10 yesterday at 11am.Next question, how many Windstream employees does it take to cross the road from the South side of Pat Colwell? It takes 10, with 3 trucks and 3 weeks.

What is NEEDED is a traffic signal at this intersection. The only thing improved so far is the speed that Murphy Hwy travelers are going. Just how many people getting killed or maimed at this intersection warrants a traffic light? My guess is the GDOT has the figure at 12.

Just ranting and raving this morning.

Preach on. I agree with everything you have said. If you want too see a real goat roping exercise. Come to that intersection on Sunday when all the churches on Pat Caldwell let out. I was told a traffic light cost about $40,000.00 to install. I'm sure that is a lot less than what has been spent alreadyGo to Top of Page
