Oconee’s first roundabout is complete just before 2020. 

For a little over a month now, citizens—particularly Bogart families with children in the Malcom Bridge schools—have traversed the roundabout at Malcom Bridge and Mars Hill 

At the December Board of Commissioners meeting, members approved a bid for another round about the bus entrance of the schools. ER Snell Contractor Inc. of Snellville will do the work for $561,377. 

Roundabouts have been promoted as a solution for Oconee’s problematic traffic spots near Malcom Bridge Elementary and Middle schools.
