The Brookhaven City Council approved a resolution Feb. 23 authoring the permanent installation of stop signs at all approaches to the intersection of Appalachee Drive and Canoochee in response to vehicle and pedestrian safety concerns.

The city conducted an engineering and traffic analysis at the intersection of the intersections at the request of residents living in the area who signed and submitted a Traffic Calming Program Initial Interest Petition Form.

The city conducted a traffic speed and volume study on Appalachee Drive on Oct. 22, 2015.

The study tracked daily volume approaching the intersections and the average speeds. Due to limited sight distance and concerns of accidents the city recommended the stop signs.
