Coweta's top engineer is recommending the creation of three-way-stops at the intersection of Happy Valley Circle and Frank Cook Road, and at the intersection of Palmetto-Tyrone Road and Fischer Spur.

Currently, traffic on Happy Valley doesn’t stop at the Frank Cook intersection. On Palmetto-Tyrone Road, west-bound traffic has a stop sign, and traffic coming off Fischer Spur has a stop sign, but traffic heading east on Palmetto-Tyrone Road doesn’t have to stop.

The recommendation from Tod Handley, Coweta’s director of transportation and engineering, is on the agenda for tonight’s meeting of the Coweta County Board of Commissioners.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. and is held in the commissioner’s meeting room, upstairs at 37 Perry St., Newnan.

According to agenda materials, the site distance for vehicles coming from Frank Cook Road is limited, and the Palmetto-Tyrone/Fischer Spur intersection can be confusing.

The commissioners will also consider a professional services contract for a traffic study related to a proposed new middle school on Shaw Road.  The study will consider whether a new road should be built to connect Shaw Road and Fischer Road.
