Road Work Might Slow Traffic Near Lanier

zombies aheadRoads in Georgia are incredibly well maintained compared to the 15 or 20 other states I’ve been in recently.

Great highways require constant maintenance and that means occasional delays might face those headed to enjoy the waters of Lake Lanier.

The Georgia Department of Transportation announces routine maintenance activities in Forsyth, Hall and Gwinnett Counties, if weather permits.

Most activities will only require shoulder or median lane closures.  This is a tentative schedule; if emergency response is needed at a crash scene or if emergency repairs are necessary this schedule will change.


  • Now through Friday, April 26.
  • Work hours are 7:00 AM – 5:30 PM, weather permitting.

WHAT & WHERE      

  • SR 369 Forsyth and Hall – Wednesday through Friday, a crew will reset the grade of the shoulders on SR 369 from SR 53/McEver Road to the Forsyth-Cherokee County Line.  This work will require a rolling lane closure and will create delays along SR 369.
  • Setting the grade of the shoulders gives motorists a “recovery area” if they run off the roadway, improving safety of the corridor.
  • Crews will work on the westbound shoulder first to the Forsyth Cherokee County line, then come back east to SR 53/McEver Road in Hall.


  • Damaged section of SR 11/US 129 will be patched.  This work will require a lane closure at the work area.
  • Mowing the medians on SR 60 and trimming vegetation on SR 136.


  • A crew will repair the shoulders and trim the vegetation alongside SR 8 and SR 324.
  • A crew will install raised pavement markers on SR 124, this work requires a rolling lane closure.
  • Damaged guardrail will be repaired on Indian Trail Road at I-85.
  • Pavement damage will be repaired on SR 316 east at SR 120 and in SR 140 at Jimmy Carter Blvd, a lane closure will be required as this work occurs.


Motorists should reduce their speed in these and all work zones.
