Bulloch County will begin construction of two intersection improvement projects along the Burkhalter-Langston Chapel Road Corridor, southeast of the Statesboro City Limits (see attached map and concepts, below). These projects will consist of the installation of single-lane traffic circles (a/k/a roundabouts), beginning as early as February 25, 2017, with estimated completion by mid-August 2017, weather permitting.
Project #1: Pretoria Rushing Road (CR 342) at Burkhalter Road (CR 585) – Single-Lane Four-Way Traffic Circle having Bike-Pedestrian Integration with the S&S Greenway/Multi-Use Trail. The contractor is Ellis Wood Contracting of Statesboro. The estimated contract amount is $640,344.
Project #2: Burkhalter Road (CR 585/248) at Langston Chapel Road (CR 233) – Single-Lane Three-Way Traffic Circle. The contractor is Mill Creek Contracting of Statesboro. The estimated project amount is $460,200.
EMC Engineering of Statesboro is the consulting engineer and construction manager, and will be aided with additional monitoring by county staff. These projects are locally funded with SPLOST 2013 proceeds.
Motorists passing through these intersections, should expect delays during the construction period, particularly at peak hours of traffic. There may be partial lane closures, or diversions. Detours are not expected at this time. However, if detours become necessary, the public will be notified in advance. Traffic will be controlled through the work zone via signs, message boards, traffic control devices, and flagging crews. Please use extra caution when approaching the work zones.
