Traffic plans around Milton are picking up speed. The Department of Transportation is confident the Highway 26 bypass project around Milton will serve its purpose. DOT spokeswoman Teri Schopp hosted a public information session at Milton City Hall Monday night. Milton Mayor Brett Frazier says community leaders have done what they can to prepare for the opening of the by-pass. Many residents attending are looking forward to four-lanes eventually opening all the way north to Watertown. The DOT says the project is on schedule and expected to be open to traffic Friday August 23rd.
