Nighttime repair work on the southbound lane of South Glynn Street (Hwy. 85) in Fayetteville is expected to begin Monday, May 13, according to officials based at the Georgia Department of Transportation’s Thomaston office. The work is expected to take place on the roadway between Speedi Pig Barbecue and the Chick-fil-A restaurant at Ramah Road.
GDOT officials say the much-needed repair work should be completed within a few nights, weather permitting, with each session beginning after 7 p.m. and concluding by 6 a.m. to minimize the inconvenience to motorists. The northbound lane will remain open, and flaggers will marshal traffic around the work zone.
According to GDOT, this repair project is independent from the nearby Hwy. 92 South repaving project, which began in the last couple of weeks on the south side of Fayetteville stretching into Spalding County. That repaving project is also being worked during these overnight hours to minimize the inconvenience to motorists.
Please use caution when driving around these work zones, and avoid them if possible.
