Georgia Department of Transportation District 3 officials say work was successful last night on a portion of storm drain being repaired under Hwy. 54 near The Southern Credit Union in Fayetteville. Workers overnight shut down one lane to repair a portion of the storm drain system, and GDOT says the crew is expected to complete the work on the other lane tonight between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. One lane of westbound traffic will remain open, and all eastbound lanes will remain open.
GDOT officials say it may take a couple more overnight work sessions to complete the concrete repairs on the shoulder and highway median.
When that repair is completed, paving crews are expected to return to the east side of Fayetteville and pour the asphalt topping on the remaining main travel lanes. Crews have already begun laying the asphalt topping on some turn lanes and intersections.
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.

Anyone with questions or concerns about the project may contact the GDOT District 3 office at 706-845-4115 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
