DAHLONEGA - Georgia Department of Transportation officials have scheduled an open house next month to take comments on plans to improve safety at a Lumpkin County intersection.

The intersection is at Stone Pile Gap at State Route 9/US 19 at State Route 60. DOT officials said engineers and consultants will be on hand to talk about options, including two roundabout designs and an all-way stop.

The meeting is scheduled from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, March 4 at the Lumpkin County Community Center on Riley Road. No formal presentation is planned, according to DOT.

In you're unable to attend, comments can be mailed to Glenn Bowman, State Environmental Administrator, Georgia DOT, 600 West Peachtree Street, 16th Floor, Atlanta, Georgia 30308. Officials said comments are due by March 14.

Plans and handouts will be available at the DOT District Office at 2505 Athens Highway in Gainesville.

Project information will also be available on the DOT website after the open house.
