Georgia DOT News Release
February 6, 2007
TIFTON - Georgia DOT recently announced that a traffic switch to move traffic back onto Madison Street Bridge in Thomasville has been tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, February 07, 2007, weather permitting.
Traffic will be switched from the temporary detour back to the mainline. This work is being done as part of project #BRN-007-1(59)01. As work progresses on this project, as well as any GDOT construction project, motorists are reminded to pay attention to all traffic control devices, including flagmen, signs and striping as they travel through the work zone.
Safety of the traveling public and workers is a top priority for GDOT and informed, attentive motorists help shifts such as this occur smoothly and safely.
The Georgia Department of Transportation seeks to provide information to the traveling public about traffic obstructions on Georgia's interstates and State Routes in order that motorists may travel safely and efficiently on our systems. Drivers are encouraged to use the services provided at GDOT's Traffic Management Center.
Operators are on duty 24/7 to provide traffic information, answer questions and alert motorists to any traffic interruptions that may occur. They can be reached at (404) 635-6800 or by calling toll free at 888-635-8287.
