Why is it taking so long to get the signal light's operating at GA-16 & Old Jackson Rd. With this being such a high traffic intersection, One would think that these light's would have already been activated wile the County & State D.O.T Work to resolve the turn lane issue, As a 28 year resident off Windy lane this not acceptable to put so many motorists life's in danger, Wile the County & State work to resolve an issue that should have been resolved during planning.
