Two traffic projects that received Statesboro City Council support Tuesday will accommodate proposed new grocery stores and other businesses. A planned $14 million addition to the Market District is the further along of the two commercial developments. The requested traffic improvement consists of adding a traffic light at the intersection of Brampton Avenue and Fair Road.A separate shopping center, involving a planned investment of more than $28 million by Armstrong Development on land now owned by the Bland family, requires a new intersection on Veterans Memorial Parkway, also known as the U.S. 301 Bypass, between Northside Drive East and Jones Mill Road.In a total development covering about 25 acres, the main shopping center will provide 130,000 square feet of retail space and feature a grocery store as one of its anchor businesses, said Nick Propps of Statesboro Properties.
