City Council has approved the following changes:
The intersection of Beauregard Boulevard and Ramah Road will be converted to a three-way stop; Beauregard at the entrance to the new Apple Orchard subdivision will be made a four-way stop.
Also, council has approved making a formal request to the state Department of Transportation to convert the new Jimmie Mayfield Boulevard/Ga. Highway 92 intersection into a three-way stop.
DOT has rejected previous requests from city staff. City engineer Don Easterbrook said he has received numerous complaints about poor visibility at the intersection.
Converting the Beauregard intersections, he said, will help encourage through traffic to move over the Ga. Highway 85.
