The first two weeks of operation of Dawsonville's new continuous flow intersection have been smooth sailing, according to county and state officials. The much-anticipated May 15 changeover came and went without the expected pile-ups and wrecks between confused residents and even more confused out-of-towners. Instead, the CFI at Hwy. 53 and Ga. 400, the first of its kind in Georgia, has been operating with what Sheriff Jeff Johnson calls "minimal issues."
