Twin Pines intersection closed for construction at Upper River Road

Drivers traveling from Jones County into Macon on Upper River Road will no longer be able to veer onto Twin Pines Drive.

Road work was to begin Monday to eliminate the fork in the road at Woodland Drive, according to a news release from the city of Macon.

Special purpose local option sales tax money is funding the project that is expected to take three to four weeks to complete.

The east Macon community petitioned for the change to reduce speed, manage traffic cutting through the Shirley Hills neighborhood and reconfigure the skewed and confusing interchange, the release stated.

Upper River Road will remain open, but motorists needing to travel onto Twin Pines Drive will have to detour on Lincoln Road and Lincoln Circle.
