Clearing for round-a-bout project underway on 278
Construction scheduled for May 31, 2020 completion
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.
Clearing is underway on the shoulders of Highway 278 in Covington.
