Lowndes work snarls traffic

Valdosta -- Construction on a busy road is causing problems for motorists. 23,000 cars a day travel Jerry Jones Drive, and construction to add a turning lane is an inconvenience to drivers and area residents.

City officials, however, believe once all the work is done, citizens will be happy with the finished product.  "We regret the inconvenience of the public during a project like this. I think once the project is completed which will be by the end of the week. They will see the huge benefit," said  Engineer Von Shipmen.  

Georgia DOT had plans to widen the road, but that proposal was pushed back due budget concerns.
