Traffic changing downtown

A change in traffic patterns in downtown Hinesville has county officials cautioning employees.
"Please pay attention to the directional arrows on the road and they will point to how the traffic flows," Assistant County Administrator Bob Sprinkel wrote in an e-mail to employees Tuesday.
The caution came as part of the city's redevelopment of the Memorial-Washington streets corridor changed a formerly one-way street just north of the courthouse annex two-way.
"It was done to assist with proper function of the traffic roundabout," said project manager Matthew Barrow with P.C. Simonton & Associates. "If that light were left there, traffic would back up around the roundabout and cause further problems."
Barrow said the change would take getting used to and advised drivers to follow the markings on the pavement.
"You won't have traffic coming down the old Memorial Drive so there's no need for the traffic light there," Barrow said.
