Hwy. 54 Repaving Update: crews to suspend work until Tuesday, Sept. 4; main travel lanes almost complete

Repaving of almost all of the main Hwy. 54 travel lanes between Fayetteville and Peachtree City is now complete, and crews will begin pouring asphalt topping on turn lanes and intersections after the Labor Day holiday, according to Georgia Department of Transportation District 3 officials.

The only stretch of main travel lane left to be repaved is the outside westbound lane starting just east of McDonough Road and ending at the North Jeff Davis Drive in Downtown Fayetteville. That portion was intentionally skipped to allow state road crews to repair a damaged storm drain near the Rosewood Drive intersection. GDOT officials say crews plan to complete that remaining section overnight (7 p.m. to 6 a.m.) Monday, Sept. 10.

Repaving of the remaining turn lanes and intersections will commence overnight Tuesday, weather permitting, and continue nightly until the project is finished.

Lane re-striping will take place after the final repaving, and crews will then install the new traffic signal loop detectors at traffic-lighted intersections.

During all of this repaving, at least one through-lane will remain open, but expect traffic delays in the affected areas.

Please drive slowly and carefully past construction zones.

Anyone with questions or concerns about the project may contact the GDOT District 3 office at 706-845-4115 or by e-mailing amccart@dot.ga.gov.
