City and DOT respond to traffic signal issues
New turn lane on bypass added; Lester Road problem reported fixed
W 032317 TRAFFIC
Traffic backs up around 5 p.m. on the 301 Bypass and Fair Road on Thursday. The city of Statesboro and the Georgia Department of Transportation are working to alleviate some of the traffic issues in the city.
In November, a traffic signal on a second lane for left turns from Veterans Memorial Parkway, also known as the U.S. 301 Bypass, onto Brannen Street was installed. The previously barred lane was repainted and opened to traffic. It allows more drivers to make the turn in one of Statesboro’s busiest areas, where Brannen provides direct access to Statesboro Crossing, site of T.J.Maxx and Books-A-Million, and goes on to Wal-Mart and the Statesboro Mall.
