The Dawson County Board of Commissioners on Thursday will be discussing the partnership with the Georgia Department of Transportation to address the traffic issues at the intersection of Lumpkin Campground Road and Hwy. 53. Work started a few weeks ago, and the project will install right-hand turn lanes on Lumpkin Campground for drivers turning east onto Hwy. 53 and west onto Hwy. 53. The county will be in charge of demolition and asphalt work and will contract out the concrete work, and will re-stripe the road once the work is completed. GDOT will pay for the asphalt, provide traffic flaggers and retime the traffic lights. On Dec. 13 Dawson County Public Works Director David McKee will be presenting a request to award a contract for curb and gutter replacement to a contract company upon receipt and review of bid documents, which will not be received until after the work session.
