Medlock Bridge Rd Widening – Update

Many have asked about the status of the proposed 141 widening. It was tabled and should come back in the new year. Whoever is elected to the Post 3 seat, will likely vote on it. 

This question was asked in the recent Post 3 runoff debate. Below are short videos of candidates answers. Please note the tabled projects for TSPLOST Tier 1, which is referred to in the videos:

– Medlock Bridge 6 Lane Widening

– Jones Bridge Rd Widening

On a side note: It was disclosed by the public works director during the 141 widening town hall, acceleration lanes will not be allowed with 6 lanes, as they are considered too dangerous. This will impact All the subdivisions on Medlock Bridge Rd.

Also as a result of the widening of Old Alabama Rd, there has been an increase of accidents at Perimeter Church, some very serious. There is a blind spot with the additional lanes and is very difficult to cross over quickly enough into the entrance.
