Talking Rock’s incoming mayor Randy Banks, left, offers an alternative to a plan presented by the state transportation officials during a meeting on the Antioch Church Road/Highway 515 intersection Monday.
A group of Talking Rock business owners expressed vigorous opposition to a state proposed change in the intersection at Antioch Church Road and Highway 515 in a Monday night forum. Georgia Transportation officials believe the change would improve safety there.
“We live here and we do not like this,” Talking Rock council member Cheryl Sams told representatives from the Ga. Department of Transportation (GDOT). “We will go as high as we have to [to stop this]. We will fight you tooth and nail.”
