Stop signs are scheduled to be installed Friday, March 23, on Martin and Sloan Mill roads in South Hall, according to Hall County officials.

The stop signs would go up on Martin at Quailwood Drive and Martin Trail/Martins Crossing, and on Sloan at Schubert Road.

The work “is earlier than originally expected,” said Ken Rearden, public works and utilities director, in emails to area residents.

“As a result of this work, there will be temporary lane closures in the area, and motorists are advised to be cautious,” he said.

Also, new speed limit signs will go up on Martin Road.

The speed limit has been lowered from 45 mph to 35 mph between Atlanta Highway and JM Turk Road and to 40 mph between JM Turk Road and Winder Highway.

The work is being done as part of Martin Road fixes in the wake of a new Interstate 985 interchange being built off the road.

Martin Road runs from Falcon Parkway/Ga. 13 to Winder Highway/Ga. 53, then becomes Sloan Mill as it goes to Poplar Springs Road/Ga. 332.

The interchange, or Exit 14, will connect Martin Road on the east side of I-985 to H.F. Reed Industrial Parkway on the west side. The project is set for completion in 2019.
