from the GA DOT-
Beginning Monday, August 15 and continuing through Thursday, August 18. Georgia DOT Area Wide Maintenance crews will be cleaning and restoring ditches on S.R. 122 in Lowndes County and S.R. 122/S.R. 11 in Lanier County.
Motorists could encounter single lane closures during this work. Each day, hundreds of Georgia Department of Transportation employees and contractors work on dozens of highway, bridge and intersection improvements throughout the state.
Their work often brings them and heavy machinery in close proximity to travel lanes. Fifty-seven Georgia DOT personnel and many more motorists, passengers and contractors' workers have been killed in highway work zone accidents since 1973.
Please help us prevent these tragedies by slowing down; being especially attentive and cautious as you pass through construction work zones; and always driving responsibly. Safer Driving; Safer Work Zones; For Everyone.
