Milton to hold open house on road improvements.

By Staff / Milton Neighbor

The city of Milton Public Works Department will hold an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. April 28 in the Executive Conference Room at City Hall to discuss and take public comment on the improvements planned for the intersection of Hopewell, Francis and Cogburn roads.

“We are looking at several alternatives for improving this problematic intersection,” Sara Leaders, Milton’s transportation engineer, said in a statement.

“First, though, we want to hear the public’s opinions and determine the solution supported by the community before we proceed with the design process.”

Leaders said the open house will be informal, and no presentation will be made. Instead, plans and experts will be available and the public is asked to stop in.

The busy intersection was identified in the Milton Comprehensive Transportation Plan as a key improvement for the city, said Leaders. Both traditional improvements, such as turn lanes and signals, and nontraditional improvements, such as a roundabout, may be appropriate.

Residents may also keep up-to-date with this and other Milton intersection projects at

The Executive Conference Room is located in Suite 107G of City Hall, at 13000 Deerfield Pkwy.
