Install a stoplight at the intersection of Old Swimming Pool Rd and HWY 129 Bypass

We would like the city to (again) request a stoplight at the intersection of Old Swimming Pool Rd. and the HWY 129 Bypass from GDOT. Many new homes have been constructed in Mallards Landing, Mallards Cove, The Woodlands, and River Mist with up to 100 more built recently in phase two and phase three of River Mist. Huge expansion of Mallards has now begun. Traffic has also increased on the HWY 129 Bypass (Jefferson/Damon Gauss Bypass). The main issue is safety. The intersection is extremely dangerous when so many people get stuck in the median. School buses get caught there each morning with cars and trucks flying by the front and rear bumpers of the buses. This is also where students and fans turn to get to the Jefferson Dragons Football stadium, swimming pool, and the city park. Building a stoplight here could also likely attract commercial development to the three undeveloped corners increasing the tax base. A connector road to the Dairy Queen up the hill to be able to use the proposed new light on Old Swimming Pool Rd would make their exit safer, too. While paving Old Swimming Pool Rd. is appreciated, we still desperately need a stop light at the Bypass. Please consider this important safety request that so many in Jefferson want. Thank you!
