GDOT announces local construction lane closings
The Georgia Department of Transportation announces that the number of travel lanes on Alcovy Road, beginning at Johnson Drive and ending at the Interstate 20 overpass, will be reduced. Traffic will be shifted on Aug. 14 at 9 a.m., weather permitting.
Motorists traveling on this section of Alcovy Road should be advised that traveling lanes will be reduced to one lane in each direction. This traffic shift will enable the reconstruction of the west side of Alcovy Road.
GDOT also announces that traffic on Interstate 20 in Newton County will be shifted on Aug. 15 at 8:30 a.m. to facilitate the reconstruction of westbound lanes. The traffic shift will occur on I-20 from Ga. Highway 142 to just west of Alcovy Road. The traffic will stay in this alignment until reconstruction of the new westbound I 20 lanes are complete.
The traveling public should be cautious of all roadway advisory signs, revised traffic markings and speed reductions. As with all road construction, motorists are advised to use extra caution in construction work zones.
