The Georgia Department of Transportation has been notified by the contractor; due to rainy weather, the scheduled lane closuresÂ in place this week along Highway 19 on the western side of the courthouse have been extended.Â Weather permitting; work will be performed daily, Monday, August 7Â through Friday, August 11Â beginning atÂ 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.Â at the area directly in front of the Veterans Memorial. The curb upgrade is to make it easier for trucks and larger vehicles to turn onto Highway 18 east. Motorists should expect slower moving traffic and delays along US 19/SR 3; Main Street during construction times. There will be no parking and a left lane closure along the western side of the Courthouse.Â This lane closure will allow crews to work more safely and quickly as they improve the turning radius from Main Street onto SR 18.Drivers are urged to slow down and proceed cautiously through this work zone.
Lane to be closed at courthouse Aug. 14-16
