The intersection of US 319 Business with 1st Street/ SR 33 and Sylvester Highway/CR 525 in Moultrie, Georgia, had experienced numerous crashes over a seven-year study period, with approximately a fourth of the crashes involving injuries. Through a statewide safety task order contract, The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) selected Gresham Smith to develop a design solution that would improve safety and traffic flow at the hazardous intersection.
Before & After
Completed in September of 2016, the roundabout creates a new gateway to the city of Moultrie, provides a safer driving experience and serves as a model for future roundabout design in the region. The project was honored with an ACEC Georgia 2016 Preconstruction Award in the Traffic Safety and/or Intersection of the Georgia Partnership for Transportation Quality (GPTQ) awards program for its commitment to GPTQ’s goals, including quality partnerships and the improvement of long-term performance and durability of Georgia’s transportation system.
