McDONOUGH — The Georgia Department of Transportation has approved the location and design for three roundabout intersections in Henry County.

Two of the roundabouts will be on Ga. Highway 20. The first would be at Ga. 20 and McGarity Road and the second would be at Ga. 20 and Lawrenceville Street. The designs and locations were approved Dec. 16. The project length is approximately six-tenths of a mile.

The third approved roundabout location is on Ga. Highway 81 at County Road 434/Jackson Lake Road and County Road 656/Snapping Shoals Road. The design and location were approved on Jan. 5.

The project length is approximately 0.24 miles. The project is located entirely in Henry County approximately 11 miles east of McDonough.

Each ‘leg’ of the roundabout will have raised medians (splitter islands) as well as curb and gutter. The proposed lane widths are 12 feet to 20 feet on the mainline (Ga. 81) and 12 feet to 19 feet on the side streets. The project would also include crosswalks and ramps on each approach for ADA compliance.

Ordinarily, maps or plats of these projects would be available for public review at Georgia DOT public offices. However, due to current COVID-19 measures, it may not be possible to access public buildings at this time. Anyone with questions or concerns about the project should call or email the area engineer for the District 3/Area 1 office:
