SNELLVILLE – The Georgia Department of Transportation will host an educational public information open house concerning the Highway 78-124 intersection May 20.
The event is open to the public and will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. First Baptist Church Snellville, 2400 Main St E.
The event is titled “Educational Public Information Open House: Maneuvering Through the New Displaced Left Turns.”
This project is currently under construction with the first phase opening in spring 2019 and full completion by the end of 2019. It will reconfigure the intersection by adding a two-legged displaced left turn (DLT) with dual left-turn lanes offset from the through lanes on the east and west legs of Highway 78. A dedicated right-turn lane is being provided for southbound Highway 124 (toward Lithonia) for vehicles heading west on Highway 78 (toward Stone Mountain).
There are also improvements to Henry Clower Boulevard that will allow the road to serve as a bypass for vehicles traveling northbound on Highway 124 (toward Lawrenceville) and eastbound and westbound on Highway 78 (toward Loganville and Stone Mountain, respectively). Vehicles must use Henry Clower Boulevard to access eastbound or westbound Highway 78 from northbound Highway 124.
The purpose of this Educational Public Information Open House is to provide the public with an opportunity to learn how to navigate the new DLT intersection and ask questions of the state’s project team.
There will be no formal presentation. Visual aids including diagrams will be on display at this meeting.
The meeting site is accessible to people with disabilities. Accommodations for people with disabilities can be arranged with advance notice by calling Project Manager Kimberly Kimbrough at 404-631-1528.
