From the GA D.O.T.-

Multi-phase Resurfacing to Begin Monday on U.S. 82 Business    

Reeves Construction Company is scheduled to begin a three-phase resurfacing project Monday, Feb. 17. Work will start on U.S. 82 Business/Oglethorpe Boulevard and will continue onto U.S. 19/Slappey Boulevard for a total of 12 miles.
