ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A large paving project continues on US 19 in Dougherty and Lee County.  The Georgia Department of Transportation continues the $3.2 million second phase of a project that will eventually resurface Oglethorpe Boulevard,  Slappey Boulevard,  and US 19 to Leesburg.      

The current work from 21st Street in Albany to north of Jordan Road in Lee County will be done from 7 AM to 7 PM and drivers are urged to use caution.  

"This particular roadway has not been resurfaced since 1995.  And it was deteriorating.  That's the reason they have to do it right now," said Nita Birmingham, G. D.O.T. Communications Officer.       

The resurfacing work in Leesburg will be done while the Lee County school system is on spring break, to cut down on traffic congestion.     

The entire paving project should be finished by the end of June.
