The new traffic signal at the thomas Crossroads Shopping Center has started flashing, and could go into full operation as soon as Wednesday. 


The new traffic light at the Thomas Crossroads Shopping Center has gone into flash mode, and could be fully operational as soon as Wednesday.

The light began flashing this week. After the seven-day flash period, it will go into full operation “if weather permits and all performance modes of the new signal operate correctly,” according to Kimberly Larson, regional spokeswoman for the Georgia Department of Transportation.

The signal heads have been hanging since February, and contractors began work on “punch list” items on March 12, Larson said last month.

The signal, which is paid for by the property owners, has been a long time in coming.

In April 2011, the Coweta County Board of Commissioners were told that the owner of the shopping center wanted to install the light and would cover all costs related to the installation, as well as the monthly utility costs, with the Georgia Department of Transportation taking over maintenance and operations.

A permit for the signal construction was issued in August, and work began on Oct. 15.
