Press release from the GDOT 

TIFTON- Georgia Department of Transportation announced the beginning of a resurfacing project on SR 520 (Albany Bypass) between Ledo Road and the Georgia/Florida Railroad overpass South of Olgethorpe Boulevard has been tentatively scheduled for Sunday, February 25, 2007, weather permitting. 

This 9.637 mile project will entail both Northbound and Southbound lanes and will include lane and ramp closures during its tenure. 

The lane and ramp closures will have a minimum impact on the traveling public, as all paving and milling will be done at night between the hours of 7:00 P.M. and 6:00 A.M.  The speed limit within the project limits will be reduced to 55 MPH on Friday, February 23, 2007, until construction of the project is completed.  

The project is expected to be completed by the end of June 2007, weather permitting.  

As always, we ask the travelers to slow down while in the work zone, and pay attention to the equipment and workers that are present. 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.

In cooperation with state and local leaders, the Georgia DOT is committed to building and maintaining top-quality roads that meet mobility needs with environmental sensitivity.  

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.
