Busy Ga. 365 intersection may get a traffic signal; N. Hall gets tax commissioner kiosk

The Georgia Department of Transportation has requested Hall County’s approval of a
traffic signal application for Cornelia Hwy (SR365) at Whitehall Road / Kubota Way

According to county documents, installation of the traffic signal will be included as part of a potential commercial development on the north west corner of Cornelia Hwy (SR365) and Kubota Way. No
County funds will be utilized for the traffic signal installation or improvements.

After project completion and acceptance, Hall County will be responsible for the monthly
utility costs for the traffic signal. Hall County currently pays the monthly utility costs for
other traffic signals located on state routes in the county. (The amounts to $93/month for each signal.)

Operation and maintenance of the traffic signal will be handled by the Georgia Department of Transportation.

The board of commissioners is expected to consider the request at its meeting on Thursday.

The Hall County Tax Commissioner’s Office, meanwhile, has opened a self-service vehicle tag renewal kiosk inside the Kroger store at 3630 Thompson Bridge Road in the Thompson Bridge Commons shopping center.  There are others throughout the county, but officials say this is the first one in North Hall.
