Albany --  Live Oak Elementary school on Gillionville Road is still without school zone signs and it's because the school is on a state highway.  

Gillionville Road is Highway 234 and before school zone signs can be put up, the Georgia Department of Transportation must perform a traffic study. That couldn't be done until school started earlier this month.

The DOT will count cars and buses and study the traffic flow, then determine whether the speed limit should be lowered.  

"Since the school has opened, that study has been made, it has been sent to the Department of Transportation in Atlanta and we're just waiting to hear what they recommend," said School System Public Information Officer Brenda Horton. 

Most of the schools in the Dougherty County School System are on city streets, so the city can place the school zone signs without consulting the DOT.
