Hopewell/Birmingham intersection comments welcome.


The City of Milton will improve the intersection of Hopewell and Birmingham roads, and residents now have the opportunity to provide comments on proposed plans for the work.

To view concept alternatives for the intersection improvements and make comments, visit Here you will find project information and displays, as well as traffic simulations and a comment form that goes directly to Sara Leaders, traffic engineer for the City of Milton.

In addition to the online options, residents have to chance to view the improvement concepts in person Wednesday, Nov. 14 at an open house held in City Council Chambers at Milton’s City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway, suite 107 E (click here for more information, click here for directions). The open house will last from 5 to 6 p.m.

Following the open house, the Milton City Council will hold its monthly work session, during which there will be an agenda item for a presentation on the intersection improvements.

“We hope you will take advantage of one of these opportunities to let the city know your view of the proposals,” said Leaders.

For more information on this project on the public meeting, contact Leaders at or 678-242-2559.

I looked at the intersection improvements but it shows turning lanes and a paved road going into the old house at the corner. Does anyone know the future plans for this old home?

Probably senior center -- there's been a couple of agenda items recently where Milton is requested block grant funds to run a senior center at the site after renovating.

Probably a brothel.

If it is a brothel, will it be for seniors only?

Why is this so complicated? There is no telling how many hundreds of thousands of dollars would have been saved if a stop sign was placed there ten years ago. That doesn't even mention people's pain and suffering.

The stop sign that is there now has been in place for 40 years. Are you proposing 2 additional stop signs on Hopewell Rd with no turning lanes?

9:40 - a three way stop would work fine like it works everywhere else. Don't make more of this than it really is.

But of course two additional stop signs wouldn't create millions of dollars worth of make-work projects for the city.
