Beginning July 10, 2014, C. W. Matthews will be resurfacing State Route 3/U. S. 19 north and southbound, from near Cook Road, south of Southern Crescent Technical College, to north of Deluxe Circle, near Potato Creek Bridge. Resurfacing will take place nightly, Sunday through Friday, from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m., weather permitting. Work will continue for approximately two months.
Matthews was awarded the contract from the Georgia Department of Transportation for 4.234 miles of milling, inlay and resurfacing for $2,157,338.30.
GDOT is asking drivers not to drive on fresh oil while the crews are working, because the oil will track onto driveways. Homeowners are asked not to park along the curb, and be sure to keep an eye on children and do not let them play in or around the streets while work is going on.
This is a work zone and extreme caution is necessary. Motorists are advised to reduce speeds as they travel through this construction work zone. Message signs, barrels and cones will be utilized to alert the public of the upcoming changes. Drivers should be aware that personnel and equipment will be operating in close proximity to travel lanes.
