Veterans Flags & Markers
Markers moving due to safety concerns
It has become increasingly dangerous for our employees to place markers on SR120 and Pleasant Hill Road. Because of this danger, all markers on SR 120 and Pleasant Hill Road will be moved to other locations over the next 12 months. Please be understanding that the City places safety for its employees first. We will do our best to contact everyone who is affected by a marker being moved.
The first group of markers to be moved will be those on SR 120 from the Methodist Church west to SR 23. Those markers will be moved to locations on SR 23.
Markers on Pleasant Hill Road west, from McClure Bridge Road to Peachtree Industrial Boulevard will be moved to SR 23, just north of Pleasant Hill Road.
