Thurmon Tanner traffic light now active
Placeholder Image

Southbound drivers on Thurmon Tanner Parkway in Flowery Branch now have a little help making the turn onto Phil Niekro Boulevard.

A long-awaited traffic light at the intersection was activated Tuesday.

Hall County hired a contractor to do the work after a Flowery Branch study more than a year ago justified the need for a traffic light at the busy crossing off Interstate 985 at Exit 12.

The intersection, which also features crosswalks, marks the southern end of the four-lane Thurmon Tanner.

The Georgia Department of Transportation is completing a final stretch of the road from Plainview to Mundy Mill roads in Oakwood. The work is expected to be finished in December.

When completed, the parkway will run from Phil Niekro to Atlanta Highway at I-985’s Exit 17.
