DOT finally announces plan for fatal bypass intersection
DOT officials announced at a workshop with Jones County Commissioners Tuesday night that the intersection of the North Gray Bypass and U.S. 129 (Eatonton Highway) will be converted into a roundabout.
The DOT will also install lighting at all major intersections, but the county would be responsible for paying the electric bill.
The project will cost about $1 million and should take about three months to complete once the work begins.
