TIFTON, GA (WALB) - Several roadways across Tifton will soon be shut down to traffic.

City contractors started work Wednesday on the first of 11 paving projects.

Several roads are in residential neighborhoods.

Those won't have a big impact on traffic, but drivers should make plans to take alternative routes.

Residents will not be allowed to park cars on the street while crews are working.

You'll need to check for exact dates and times for each project to avoid being ticketed and towed.

Residents should keep in mind that the timeline for the projects may be extended because of the weather.

Right now, crews plan to be finished in the next couple of weeks.
