I-20 work ‘can­celled’ for tax-free week­end

The Covington News - - LOCAL - ROB DEWIG rdewig@cov­news.com

Driv­ers on I-20 might have no­ticed a dis­tinct lack of con­struc­tion this week­end. Work on east­bound lanes of In­ter­state 20 sched­uled this week­end was “can­celled” Fri- day, ac­cord­ing to Ge­or­gia De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion press sec­re­tary David Spear.

The project con­sists of resur­fac­ing the two right lanes of I-20 east­bound be­tween Cony­ers and Cov­ing­ton, as well as work on the east­bound exit and en­trance ramps at Al­mon Road.

It was orig­i­nally sched­uled to con­tinue as planned, de­spite be­ing tax-free week­end in Ge­or­gia. Spear said the rainy fore­cast was to blame for the week­end’s con­struc­tion de­lay. The project will re­sume af­ter this week­end.
