Construction woes stall motorists in Moultrie

December 20, 2006

Moultrie-  Construction is slowing traffic along Highway 319 in Moultrie and causing angry motorists to call the Moultrie Police Department. 

The Georgia Department of Transportation is resurfacing Highway 319 near the intersection of New Quitman Road. The paving project is time consuming and has traffic approaching the light narrowed to a single lane in each direction. Moultrie Police urge drivers to consider an alternate route away from the construction. 

"If at all possible they can take an alternative route to avoid the construction and delays with traffic do to the amount of construction down there we are asking that those that can , will take an alternative route through downtown Moultrie," said Captain Gary Casteloes, Moultrie Police Department. 

Police suggest motorists use Business 319 that runs through downtown Moultrie. The good news is construction is ahead of schedule and should wrap up in February.
