A new traffic light for Sterling on the Lake has scratched at an old wound for some residents at another massive South Hall subdivision, Reunion Country Club. Last year, the Georgia Department of Transportation rejected putting up a traffic light at Friendship Road/Ga. 347 at Grand Reunion Drive, “but traffic is only going to get worse from here on out,” Reunion resident Carrie Kiger said. The DOT has done two studies, but both were done before Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton opened off Ga. 347 near Old Winder Highway/Ga. 211 in April 2015.
