Hwy. 54 Repaving Update: 24-hour work planned for the Aug. 24-27 weekend

Highway 54 repaving crews will work around the clock this weekend, Aug. 24-27, starting at 7 p.m. Friday and concluding by 6 a.m. Monday, according to Georgia Department of Transportation District 3 officials.

The plan is for crews to complete the asphalt topping for the main lanes of Hwy. 54 westbound to the Coweta County line and then work back through Peachtree City to Fayetteville in the main eastbound lanes.

GDOT officials say crews Wednesday night completed the asphalt topping on the inside eastbound lane of Hwy. 54 moving through the east side of Fayetteville to the project terminus, which is a point just east of the McDonough Road intersection. They then picked up at the North Jeff Davis Drive intersection and paved that inside westbound lane to around the Deep Forest Lane intersection just west of Grady Avenue. They skipped over that westbound section of roadway between McDonough Road and North Jeff Davis Drive for now, because other crews are working to repair a stormwater pipe that runs under the highway near Rosewood Drive.

Once the main lanes of Hwy. 54 are completed, crews will pour asphalt topping on turn lanes and other areas. They will then reinstall loop timing systems 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.
