Warner Robins city councilmen discuss adding roundabout on Moody Road

It would sit at the intersection of Moody Road and Pleasant Hill Road. Councilman Daron Lee says it would alleviate both city and Robins Air Force Base traffic

WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — Monday's Warner Robins city council meeting includes a discussion about some safety features that Councilman Daron Lee wants to add to the city, like a roundabout.

John Zeigler from Kathleen drives down Moody Road almost every day. He said traffic at the intersection of Moody Road and Pleasant Hill Road is a nightmare.

"It's a bad intersection during the day, especially when people are getting off of work. It gets really congested and you can't hardly get out," said Zeigler.

He also said the lines at the intersection are so faded, it's almost impossible to see them, especially in the rain.

Kelvin Robinson has noticed the problem, too. 

"It's real bad, it's a congested area."

He said he's seen quite a few fender-benders at the intersection as well.

Councilman Lee said a citizen came to him with a concern about the intersection, so he wants to get the other councilmen on board with adding a roundabout.

Over the phone, he said it would help with the city and Robins Air Force Base traffic flow, as well as beautify the city.

It's something Robinson and Zeigler would be excited to see sooner rather than later, whether it's a roundabout or even a traffic signal.

Some of those other areas Lee will discuss with his fellow councilmen will include adding signs with caution lights at the pedestrian crossings at Fountain Park and Wellborn Road and Wall Street.

He also said Rusty Road, Shannon Place, and Amber Drive need to be re-striped, and Peach Blossom Road needs sidewalks.
