Locals Petition to Change Dangerous Intersection in Bulloch County, GA
BULLOCH COUNTY, GA- Locals are fighting to have a four-way traffic light installed at Highway 67 and Brooklet-Denmark Road in Bulloch County. Drivers in the area fear that the intersection, which has been the location of more than one fatal crash, is going to continue to put locals at risk until serious changes are completed.*
The petition calls on lawmakers to replace the yellow caution light with a four-way traffic signal in an effort to improve safety. The area has earned itself the ominous nickname “the Devil’s Triangle” because of the many severe collisions that have occurred. The intersection is where Brooklet-Denmark changes to Nevils-Denmark Road and also involves a point where Highway 67 crosses to Interstate 16. Traffic has increased in the region, and with it, so have the risks of crashes. Speeding is one of the possible concerns, while truck traffic also creates dangers and sometimes leads to obstructed views of the road.
While county officials have long been aware of complaints about the intersection, State Highway 67 is the responsibility of the state of Georgia, and therefore changes require that the state take action rather than just the county.
Residents point out that proximity to schools has led to school buses, agricultural vehicles, and student drivers frequently passing through. A study will have to be completed in order to determine whether the traffic signal should be added. It is estimated that the installation will cost anywhere from $160,000 to $180,000. Drivers who know the region say that the price is small when compared to the risks presented by the intersection.
