DOUGLASVILLE, GA (CBS46) -

Two immediate changes are coming to a stretch of Highway 5, neighbors call dangerous.

Crews refreshed striping around a curve near Sweetwater Drive, and are set to upgrade signage next week.

“You can see coming into the driveway now, you can see at night,” said Donald Suter, a local resident.

The road work is the result of a few discussions CBS46 had with the Georgia Department of Transportation.

CBS46 first asked GDOT leaders how they planned on protecting those behind the wheel in December, shortly after 16-year-old Joshua Murphy was killed in a tragic car accident.

 “What ya’ll have done has helped,” said Suter.

GDOT crews began phase one last week. After the changes are made, they’ll do a speed test to determine if any other road work is necessary.
