SNELLVILLE – Drivers travelling through the intersection of highways 124 and 78 can expect changes to the traffic pattern in the near future.
The changes are tentatively planned for May 1 as construction crews on the state project need to shift traffic flow to work on parts of the intersection.
Lanes heading westbound on Highway 78 will shift two lanes to the north to make room for new paving and drainage in the center of the road.
Drivers heading north on Highway 124 wanting to head westbound on 78 will need to take a left turn at Henry Clower Boulevard to travel toward Stone Mountain. This left turn at Highway 78 will be permanently eliminated.
The signal bridge, which will span the intersection and support traffic signals, should also be erected in May.
Businesses will still be open in Snellville Plaza throughout further construction, but will be right in/right out only.
Project officials hope to have major construction completed by the end of November.
