PTC installs ‘directional’ signs for rec complex
To out-of-town guests, the McIntosh Trail recreation area is a bit off the beaten path.
The area hosts several large-scale meets each year at the city’s BMX track, and visitors are also drawn to the summer concert series at the city amphitheater there as well as the city’s visitor’s center.
Some visitors, however, have found it challenging to locate the McIntosh recreation complex since it is a bit off the beaten path, according to city officials.
In an effort to make it easier for out-of-towners to find those venues, the city has installed directional signage at several locations.
The signs will help guide motorists along Ga. Highway 54 to head south on Peachtree Parkway where they will see another sign at McIntosh Trail directing them to the complex. Directional signs were also installed along Ga. Highway 74 to direct motorists onto Kelly Drive/McIntosh Trail to reach the complex.
The signs are posted so that they may be seen by traffic going both directions on the highways. The city plans to trim back some tree limbs to make the signs on Hwy. 54 more visible.
