Georgia Department of Transportation Cancels Road Project at Last Minute
GEORGIA – According to an online news report at decaturish.com, the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) cancelled a road project that was to be located at the intersection of North Decatur Road and Scott Boulevard. The project was intended to install traffic signal loops for the week of May 20, 2019.*
A roadway project was cancelled that was supposed to install traffic signal loops at the intersection of North Decatur Road and Scott Boulevard. This project would have significantly affected travel who routinely drive on Scott Boulevard.
The GDOT initially noted that the above-named intersection would be closed from Monday, May 20, 2019 to Thursday, May 23, 2019 from 5:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Per the online news report, traffic signal loops are “sensors in the road that detect when a car is waiting at the light. The loops aid in signal timing.”
This morning, GDOT stated that all lanes of the roadway will not be closed and that any disruptions would be minimal. “There will be short intermittent single lane closures following repaving to repair the signal loops,” the spokesperson for GDOT stated. “It should have minimal impact and work at each location is swift.”
Just a few hours after issuing the above report, GDOT cancelled the project. GDOT apologized for the late announcement, as they indicated that they issue numerous traffic disruption reports per day. Due to the high amount of notifications, they are occasionally vulnerable to errors.
According to the GDOT spokesperson, they intend on providing updated information about the temporary lane closures as soon as it becomes available. The error was due to a lack of communication. “There was a miscommunication between our traffic operations team and the individual who entered [it] in the system,” the spokesperson provided. “We are still sorting it out.”
