Construction and development crews with the Georgia Department of Transportation have been occupying the Ga. 400 and Hwy. 53 intersection for nearly 20 months, working to bring the state's first continuous flow intersection to the county. The end is now in sight for construction on the "at-grade intersection," which is designed to move left-turning vehicles out of traffic's main flow by using a series of access roads and longer left-turn lanes. Katie Strickland, district one communications officer for the GDOT, said that the expected completion date for the continuous flow intersection, or CFI, is May 10, 2017.
