Drivers may want to seek alternate routes if they have to travel on Ga. 247 in Houston County beginning Thursday.
The Georgia Department of Transportation is expected to close a lane at a time on Ga. 247 from the new Ga. 96 interchange to the old Ga. 96 interchange near the Flash Foods/Taco Bell at 498 Ga. 247 as roadwork is done. Drivers can expect delays along that section of the road.
The lane closings will be in effect 9 a.m.-3 p.m. daily to be more convenient to most commuter traffic, according to a state DOT news release. Flaggers and portable signs may be present.
Transportation officials advise motorists to exercise caution when driving through that stretch of Ga. 247 or to seek alternative routes.
