Why holiday traffic may be easier this year at Dawsonville Highway and McEver
Plan will ban left turns out of Village Shoppes to improve safety, traffic flow

Some traffic relief may be coming to Dawsonville Highway before Black Friday, as the city hopes to get a real-time traffic light adjustment system in place and the Georgia Department of Transportation hoping to complete another “quick response” project in the area. The response project will get rid of left turns for southbound traffic on McEver at entrances to the Kohl’s and Publix-anchored shopping centers. Also, the project will ban left turns from the Publix shopping center onto McEver. - photo by Scott Rogers
City and state road efforts may make holiday traffic a little more joyful than last year for Dawsonville Highway drivers. The most noticeable traffic change in the area might take place at an accident-prone crossing on McEver Road where an entrance to the Publix-anchored shopping center, Village Shoppes at Gainesville, sits opposite of the Kohl’s-anchored shopping center, McEver’s Corner.
