Snellville - Removal of Reversible Traffic Lanes

Snellville’s 2030 Comprehensive Plan, adopted in 2009, called for removal of reversible lanes on US 78. This was an important issue for the community because the reversible lanes had long been known to contribute to higher crash and injury rates, public safety concerns, and also hampered vehicular access to the businesses along Highway 78, thereby limiting their economic viability. The city subsequently succeeded in having the reversible lanes removed by 2011. The result has been popular with local citizens, commuters on Highway 78, and has already spurred redevelopment of a declining strip center along US 78 that was previously hampered by ingress and egress issues caused by the reversible lanes.
