Trees are com­ing down to make way for the $19.3 mil­lion project on High­way 278 in Cov­ing­ton.

Ge­or­gia Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion (GDOT) Dis­trict Two Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Spe­cial­ist Kyle Collins said the project con­sists of the widen­ing and re­con­struc­tion of Hwy-278 from mile 7.97 to 10.43.

“The road­way will con­sist of two 12-foot lanes in each di­rec­tion sep­a­rated by a 24food raised grassed me­dian with 10-foot ru­ral shoul­ders of which 6.5-foot is paved,” he said.

Also in­cluded in the project, he said, is a round-a-bout at the in­ter­sec­tion of State Route (SR) 12 and SR-142. A traf­fic sig­nal will also be in­stalled at the in­ter­sec­tion of SR-12 and Elks Club Road.

The sched­uled com­ple­tion date is May 31, 2020, he said. The work is be­ing com­pleted by E.R. Snell Con­trac­tor Inc.
