New Bypass ramp opens Monday

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Here's an alert for drivers in Dougherty County-- The new Exit 5 ramp from the Liberty Expressway onto Jefferson Street will open Monday.

Traffic will be shifted to the new ramp so crews can remove the existing ramp lanes.

A temporary signal will be put in place at Jefferson Street.

Drivers are asked to use caution and expect delays in that area

The Georgia Department of Transportation began the $13.1 million reconstruction of the interchange in 2013.

It should be completed by the end of this year.
