Slow down on Highway 82

Posted: Updated:
LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

The speed limit is about to drop on part of a busy south Georgia highway.

Tuesday night, Lee County Commissioners signed off on a Department of Transportation plan to reduce the limit from 65 to 55 on Highway 82 in the Hickory Grove area.

The county initially requested a traffic light at 82 and Oakland Parkway. The DOT decided on a lower speed limit instead.

News signs will be posted soon.
