Forsyth County Road Work This Week

GDOT maintenance crews will be working on Georgia 400 in Forsyth County this week.

Beginning today (Monday) maintenance crews with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) will be on Georgia 400 in Forsyth County repairing a storm drain and patching up the asphalt.

Crews will be working on both south and northbound lanes repairing damaged areas throughout the county, according to Teri Pope of GDOT.

Most activities will only require shoulder or median lane closures and an intermittent single lane closure and/or flagman will be utilized for asphalt patching.

Weather permitting, scheduled work hours are from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. through Friday, June 29. If emergency response is needed at a crash scene or if emergency repairs are necessary this schedule will change, according to the GDOT.

The GDOT asks you to be especially attentive and cautious as you pass through construction work zones, slow down and always driving responsibly.

Each day, hundreds of Georgia Department of Transportation employees and contractors work on dozens of highway, bridge and intersection improvements throughout the state. Their work often brings them and heavy machinery in close proximity to travel lanes.

Fifty-seven Georgia DOT personnel and many more motorists, passengers and contractors’ workers have been killed in highway work zone accidents since 1973.
