The Georgia Department of Transportation will make some changes to speed limits in the Albany area. The D-O-T will temporarily lower the speed limit on much of the Liberty Expressway from 65 to 55-miles per hour. 

The lower limit will run from February 25th through the end of June due to a 6.2-million dollar construction project on the expressway.

"We ask everyone to slow down in the work zone.  Even though the speed limit is 55, there's nothing wrong with slowing down a little bit more. And be alert for our workers"said Craig Soloman with the Georgia Department of Transportation. 

The affected area will be from just North of Procter and Gamble to near the Albany Mall. The D-O-T says the slow down is typical for the safety of construction workers, and the speed limit will change back to 65 when the project is finished.
