City prepares for traffic changes
The city is preparing to relocate a traffic signal to the main entrance of College of Coastal Georgia on Altama Avenue, giving the college a second light.

Plans call for installing a traffic light at what will be the entrance to the new Brunswick High School, expected to open in early 2014, and College of Coastal Georgia.

The traffic signal currently on Altama Avenue at College Place United Methodist Church that served the old Jane Macon Middle School will be moved south to serve the high school and college.

"The idea is the college and Brunswick High are cooperating on some classes, so you'll have students going to college-level classes," said City Engineer Dan McFee.

Both the Glynn County Board of Education and the college are in the process of constructing their own roadways that will form an intersection at Altama Avenue.

The college entrance will be aligned directly across the entrance to Brunswick High School and include a Founders Gate and the James A. Bishop arch for pedestrians.

It will be a second signal the city would have installed for college-bound traffic.

"We did the same things on Fourth Street so people coming from the hospital (on Hampton Avenue) could get across the street," McFee said.

McFee said the project will begin in January and be completed by the end of March.
