• Highway 23 Resurfacing Project Starts Monday

    Posted: Mar 22, 2018
    By:

    Today will be the first day there will be lane closures on SR 23. The Georgia DOT is going to start deep patching in the southbound lane at the RR crossing that is approximately mid point of the job. They will work their way towards Girard in the southbound lane. ATC Site Construction will begin patching activities on the $3.9 million resurfacing of State Route (SR) 23 from south of Stoney Bluff Road to SR 56. The total 19-mile work area should be complete in two to three months, weather permitting.

    Contractors will break down the route into two sections from Girard to the railroad crossing on SR 23 and from there to SR 56. The southern section, spanning 12.6 miles, will be first and the northern 6.4-mile section nearest SR 56 second.

    Initial patching phases means shorter lane closures in each section of the roadway, while the inner-layer and final asphalt surface topping could mean up to a two-mile lane closure. Expect delays as a flagging and/or pilot car operation will be used.

    The work schedule is roughly 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on weekdays. Expect delays and find an alternate route if at all possible. Contractors will use as much daylight as possible to complete the job quickly.
