Roundabout

Roundabout open at Intersection of Hwys 53 and 183

Roundabout open for traffic

In October, a Georgia Department of Transportation press release announced a temporary detour for the construction of a roundabout project at the intersection of Hwy. 53 and Hwy. 183 in Dawson County. After a closure and detour during the last weekend of March, the roundabout is open, traffic is moving, and the stop signs and temporary roads are gone.

According to the Georgia DOT, the shape of roundabouts provides a reduced speed environment that offers substantial safety advantages and excellent operational performance. Roundabouts are considered as an alternative for all intersections that are being reconstructed.
