The Cherokee County government could move forward with studying an intersection where an Acworth woman was killed in an car accident earlier this year.

The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday, March 18 will consider approving a professional services contract with Kimley-Horn & Associates, Inc. to study the intersection of Victory Drive at Woodstock Road during its meeting.

The meeting will start at 6 p.m. at the county administration building in Canton. It will be preceded by a work session that will get underway at 3 p.m. 

The study would cost $10,900 and would involve reviewing accident data, site distance at the intersection, traffic flow and turning movement counts, future development trends in the immediate area that will impact traffic flow at the intersection, perform a roundabout analysis and traffic signal study and conduct an all-way stop warrant analysis. 

On Jan. 11, Tiffany Robbins, 26, who also had her three-year-old daughter restrained in the backseat of her vehicle, was turning onto Woodstock Road from Victory Drive when her Honda Accord pulled into the path of a truck traveling northbound on Woodstock Road. 

The woman and her three-year-old child, who both had "visible injuries," were transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital for treatment. Robbins underwent an emergency c-section at the hospital, but the baby did not survive. Robbins later died of internal injuries.

The driver of the truck was not "not seriously injured" and was not taken to a hospital for treatment. The driver was also not charged in the accident. Robbins' aunt Judy Beale created an online petition asking the county to install stop signs at the three-way intersection.
