MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Macon-Bibb County commissioners voted Tuesday morning, to consider adding a roundabout to a busy intersection in Macon.

According to a traffic study by GDOT, there were 142 crashes in District 3 from 2011-2015.

GDOT is hoping this will help with pedestrian safety as well. Commissioners will have the final vote next week at a commission meeting.

The PowerPoint presented to commissioners says the next steps for GDOT is to get the letter of support from Macon-Bibb County. Then, GDOT will move toward a Concept Team Meeting and create a design. This will likely be in the spring/summer of 2018.
