Roadway roundup: Changes coming near Amazon fulfillment site
APPLING, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - All-way stops will be installed Monday at the Appling-Harlem Road interchange with Interstate 20.
Stop signs will be placed at the two intersections where 221 meets the I-20 ramps, making both intersections three-way stops.
The purpose is to slow traffic through the interchange, and also make left turns easier for travelers throughout the project area.
The all-way stop condition will remain in place until further notice.
The aim of the project near the new Amazon fulfillment center is to make the route better equipped to handle traffic.
The overpass bridge is being replaced, and roundabouts are being constructed at the two interchanges to improve safety.
