A section of Old Perry Road from Bellwood Drive to just north of the entrance to Morgan Ranch subdivision will be closed until Jan. 3.
Tommy Stalnaker, director of operations for Houston County, said the road closure is required for construction work that is part of the second phase of the $1.2 million widening of Old Perry Road.
The second phase of the widening is from Bellwood Drive to Woodard Road, he said.
Crews are putting in three lines of 36-inch storm drainage pipe under a 16-inch water pipe, Stalnaker said.The road was closed Monday morning for that work, he said.
A detour sign is in place. The detour follows Woodard Road, Moody Road and then Ga. 96.
Motorists are advised to exercise caution and obey construction signs when traveling through the area.
