Valdosta Eager Road detour is mandatory

Posted: Updated:
VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta Engineers are urging drivers to be cautious around the Eager Road detour while workers install water and sewer mains.

Officials say drivers have been ignoring the detour signs nearly causing multiple crashes. The detour will continue on Eager Road until May 17th. Officials ask drivers to take Northfield Road to Green Meadow Drive.

"Almost a head on collision, we had someone go around the barricade and take out a construction truck's mirror as well as their own mirror," said Jim Martinez, Valdosta Engineering Department.

Traffic in the eastbound lane of Eager will not be affected and will remain open during construction.
