LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Lee County commissioners are looking at ways to ease traffic and congestion.
At peak morning and afternoon hours, downtown Leesburg can be a headache for drivers. The main problem area is where US 19 and State Routes 132 and 195 converge.
Lee County commissioners are considering a $33,500 comprehensive study that will recommend improvements. Sales tax revenue will cover 10-percent of the study. The Georgia Department of Transportation will cover the rest.
The end result should be a plan to reduce the congestion that continues to grow every school year. "Leesburg has a population of 2,800 to 3,000 but it grows to about 10,000 when school is in session," said Bob Alexander, Lee County Director of Engineering.
Another long-term project that Bob Alexander says is critical to easing traffic is a proposed Leesburg North Bypass. The bypass would run from State Route 3 and US 19 to State Route 195.
It's estimated that 17,000 cars a day will travel that route in the future. The project would cost $7-million which would be paid for with federal and state money.
