Roundabouts

 

 

Roundabouts are circular intersections. Roundabouts reduce traffic conflicts (for example, left turns) that are frequent causes of crashes at traditional intersections. Unlike a traffic circle or a rotary, a roundabout's incoming traffic yields to the circulating traffic.

Columbia County Signs and Markings Policy and Details 

Connect Central Georgia Study - The basis for the Connect Central Georgia Study is to assess safety, mobility, and connectivity across one of the most important transportation links in the state. The 31-County study area, which spans the middle of Georgia from the Alabama border to the South Carolina border, includes four key cities – Columbus, Macon, Warner Robins, and Augusta. This area also includes significant natural and agricultural resources that drive economic development in the state. This study will be the first holistic look at traffic and goods movement across this portion of the state and will build off of the accomplishments and lessons learned from previous transportation studies.

The Augusta Regional Transportation Study (ARTS) requires involvement by policy makers, technical staff, and citizens in order to address the various aspects of the transportation planning process.

The Augusta Regional Transportation Study (ARTS) is the transportation planning process established for the Augusta GA – SC urbanized area. The bi-state ARTS area includes the urbanized part of the Augusta region, plus the area expected to become urbanized over the next twenty years. The study area includes all of Richmond County, Georgia, part of Columbia County, Georgia, the Fort Gordon Military Reservation, part of Aiken County, South Carolina, and part of Edgefield County, South Carolina. Incorporated places within the study area include the Georgia cities of Augusta, Hephzibah, Blythe and Grovetown, and the South Carolina cities of Aiken, North Augusta, and Burnettown.

The Augusta Planning and Development Department, a department of the Augusta, Georgia government, is the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the ARTS and is responsible for coordinating the regional transportation planning process.  For additional information, please visit the Augusta, Georgia ARTS website.
