Overnight lane closures are scheduled to begin Monday, Aug. 20, to resurface GA 400 from Highway 306 in north Forsyth County to Highway 53 in Dawson County, the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) announced in a press release.

The project, approximately 8.7 miles long, entails removing one inch of asphalt one night and replacing it with new asphalt the next night for a smoother driving surface for motorists. GDOT urges you to use caution as you drive through the work zone.

Crews will be working in one southbound lane at a time beginning on GA 400 at Highway 53. Southbound lane closure hours are 5:30 p.m. (beginning this evening) to 5:30 a.m.

Northbound work hours are 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. as weather permits. No daytime lane closures and no weekend lane closures are planned.

The work is scheduled to occur overnights Sundays through Thursdays only. 

A completion date of November 30, 2012 for the $3.2 million resurfacing project is expected. C.W. Matthews Contracting, Inc. of Marietta was awarded the contract.
