News Release from the Georgia Department of Transportation, released to the Butts County Government on Tuesday, December 12th:

This week the Georgia Department of Transportation, a State agency, is installing a roundabout on Georgia Highway 36 at its intersection with Higgins Road and Keys Ferry Road. This roundabout will use a test product material that is bolted directly to the asphalt. The Federal Government Highway Department has approved the test and the State will be monitoring its success. Installation should be complete before the end of the week.

We emphasize that this is a State project test and will be closely monitored by State officials to determine viability.
