Lane Closures for Utility Work Continue next week along Talbotton Road


THOMASTON – Utility work continues next week on the Talbotton Road widening project. Work is being performed at various locations and may require lane closures. Contractors are scheduled to work daily from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. beginning Monday, February 20 through Friday, February 24.


Weather permitting; contractors will be installing a lane closure to continue the installation of a water line along the eastbound shoulder at the intersection of 28th Street and Warm Springs Road.


Weather permitting; a traffic shift will be installed on Friday, February 24.  This shift will affect Warm Springs Road east and westbound reducing the lanes from 2 to 1 lane. This shift will be at the Intersection of Warm Springs Road Woodruff Road/Hilton Road.  Motorists are to be alert to delays while this shift is being installed.  Pre-shift work will be conducted all day such as re-striping the road and adjusting the signals.   


Motorists are cautioned to be alert to trucks entering and exiting the roadway between Center Street and North Avenue as construction of a concrete wall continues along the eastbound shoulder.


The project will reconstruct Talbotton/Warm Springs Road from two-lanes to four-lanes with a raised median, sidewalks, and curb and gutter. The project begins at the intersection of Talbotton Road and 7th Avenue, follows the existing alignment and terminates just beyond the intersection of Warm Springs Road and Woodruff Road/Hilton Avenue.
