Hwy. 54 Repaving Update: work returns to Downtown Fayetteville; 12.5-mile repaving should be completed this month

Hwy. 54 repaving should be finished by the end of the month, say Georgia Department of Transportation District 3 officials based on word they are receiving from the contractor, E. R. Snell.

After repaving 12.5 miles of main travel lanes along Hwy. 54 from the Coweta County line to a point just east of McDonough Road, crews have been pouring the asphalt topping in turn lanes and intersections from Peachtree City back toward Fayetteville. GDOT officials say the long-awaited finishing of intersections and turn lanes in Downtown Fayetteville should commence this weekend.

Work will take place between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m.

While the City welcomes comments and questions on the Hwy. 54 repaving project, the public is being reminded that this is a state project. Communications with the City on the project are forwarded to GDOT.

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.

Visit the City’s website, www.fayetteville-ga.gov, and social media channels for updates.

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.
