Two roundabouts will be added to Highway 136 in the Blaine/Talking Rock area. Transportation officials say the research is clear, roundabouts are safer for motorists.

Groundbreaking is still two years away, but according to the Georgia Department of Transportation a project that will widen a portion of Highway 136 and add two new roundabouts is “a go.” 

One roundabout will be located in Blaine at the three-way “Y” intersection of Highway 136 and the Highway 136 Connector (location of Bart’s Bait & Tackle), and the other at a realigned intersection of Highway 136 and Old Highway 5/Ellijay Road. Total length of the project is 2.7 miles on Highway 136 between the 136 Connector and Highway 515.
