Gridlock center of Lee road study

October 15, 2002

Lee County-- Gridlock in downtown Leesburg will be at the heart of a new study.

Parents had a hard time getting their kids to school on the first day. Traffic was backed up more than a mile on U.S. 19 into Leesburg. Some kids were late, and teachers had to hold off roll call until all the student's arrived.

This is a yearly occurrence for Lee County, as heavy traffic bottlenecks in downtown Leesburg. The Georgia Department of Transportation plans to look at possible improvements for two intersections-- Old Smithville Road and Highway 195 and U.S. 19 and Main Street.

No word yet on when the study will begin.
