Next month a meeting will be held to discuss possible improvements to the headache-inducing intersection of Garland, Gaston and Grand.

“That is not the most user-friendly intersection of all time,” says City Councilman Mark Clayton.

Clayton’s office has been working with state representatives Eric Johnson and Kenneth Sheets to come up with possible improvements to the area. If a project does happen at the intersection, it would be state run but include city money.

The meeting will be held at Mt. Auburn Elementary School Auditorium at 6012 E. Grand on Wednesday, Sept. 7  from 6-8 p.m.

Clayton says several ideas to improve traffic conditions and mobility at the intersection will be presented. The meeting is open to the public.
