The Georgia Department of Transportation Working to Update Intersection in Bulloch County
BULLOCH COUNTY, GA- An intersection in Bulloch County has become a cause for concern for the locals who frequently drive in the area. The intersection, which is located at State Route 67 and Brooklet-Denmark Road, has recently been handling more traffic, and many feel that it is not designed to accommodate the number of vehicles passing through. State Route 67 also widened, adding to the problem.*
Some in the county believe that the intersection should have had a traffic light even prior to the road being widened from two to four lanes.
For locals, the intersection has been dubbed the “Devil’s Triangle.” The name is in reference to the fact that numerous severe crashes have taken place at the crossroads, including some that led to fatalities.
Some explanations for the road becoming deadlier include the fact that many large trucks use the roads and people tend to speed in the area. Some drivers also complain that the angle of the road leads to the sun getting into people’s eyes, making it difficult for drivers to see.
A petition to redesign the intersection received thousands of signature this month. According to officials, a plan was already in the works to complete an evaluation of the intersection.
The process does take time, though, as studies must be completed prior to the beginning of construction. The state claims that they will work to complete the project as promptly as possible, as they acknowledge that it is no longer adequately accommodating the traffic that flows through the area.
Experts say the first step to improving an intersection is to go to officials with a detailed description of why the intersection is dangerous rather than a specified request for a signal or stop sign.
