U. S. 19 lanes opened

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

LEE CO., GA (WALB) - The Georgia Department of Transportation opened the northbound lanes of Highway 19 Thursday morning between Leesburg and Americus.

While the lanes were open, crews were still putting the finishing touches on permanent signs along the highway's cross streets. Motorists will likely see crews working along Highway 19 over the next month an a half while work is completed on the median and rumble strips are added to side roads.

The southbound lanes will also be repaved. "The southbound lanes, we'll still have final pavement to do on those and are expecting to complete that over the next two weeks weather permitting," said GDOT Albany Engineer Tony Crevey.

Work is expected to wrap up by December. The nearly ten miles of widening for additional lanes is just part of an overall project to four lane Highway 19 from Atlanta to Albany.
