“We’re going to start the construction right after Masters it was in SPLOST 6 it seems like it’s needed based on what I’m hearing from the constituents that live around that area there’s a lot of screeching tires and wrecks that happen,” says Commissioner Sean Frantom.

“Traffic Engineers like the traffic circles because it reduces the chance of the T-Bone accident they say they’re safer but for Augusta motorists this is very unfamiliar territory.

“There’s definitely going to be a learning curve for people who are not use to them I think we have a few in the community not many so I definitely think it’s going to be a learning curve,” says Frantom.

“There’s one over there by Gander Mountain that seems to be fairly effective not a lot of traffic over there they seem to work in cities I’ve seen them at,” says Baldwin.

This roundabout has been a long time coming the million dollars to pay for it comes is from SPLOST 6, which was approved in 2009.

Once Construction gets underway the work will take about 8 months.

Plans for improvement are coming, but it's not anytime soon. The $11 million project is part of a list of TIA projects starting anywhere from 2020 to 2022. It includes replacing the bridge and improving the intersection.

"It could definitely be improved because you know that bridge is a very old bridge," said Mcfeely.

"I know when we got this roundabout up here at Pumpkin Center I said that they should've done something with I-20 and then worked their way down here," said Abair.

That change came because of an increase in accidents. That change many drivers say could be justified right off Exit 183.

"Even something as simple as a red light would make a world of difference right there," said Abair.

GDOT says they will know more about this project as the start date gets closer, but they say construction is at least 5 years away from now. It's expected to start sometime between 2020 and 2022.
