Reduced Conflict U-Turn to be installed at two intersection on SR 365

Construction of a two reduced conflict U-Turns commonly known as RCUTs on State Route (SR) 365 will begin this week. The intersections are located at Alto Mud Creek Road and Yonah Road.
Introducing a RCUT prohibits side-street traffic from traveling straight through a mainline intersection or making a left turn.
Reduced conflict intersections are intersections that decrease fatalities and injuries caused by broadside crashes on four-lane divided highways. RCUTs are also referred to as J-turns.

WHAT: Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) and contractor Vertical Earth will be starting construction of two RCUTs at two locations on SR 365 in Habersham this week. Cones and signs have been erected in and around the two locations.

WHEN: Starting in April, anticipate probable lane closures occurring during the construction period.

WHERE:. This operation will impacts both northbound and southbound traffic on SR 365 in the areas around Alto Mud Creek Road and Yonah Road. Construction is anticipated to be completed by the end of June 2024 - weather permitting.

NOTE: Motorists are cautioned to reduce their speed while traveling through work zones, stay alert, and watch for workers. Delays are anticipated. Consider alternate routes.

Advisory: Exact dates may change due to weather or other factors. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions by calling 511, visiting, or downloading the Georgia 511 app.
