Section of Ga. 49 to close for 3 days

FORT VALLEY — A section of Ga. 49 in Fort Valley is expected to be closed for three days next week for work at a railroad crossing, the Georgia Department of Transportation says.

Ga. 49 between Vineville Street and the Ga. 49 Connector is expected to be shut down in both directions from 9 a.m. Tuesday until noon Thursday, the release said.

The closing is required for the replacement of concrete panel by GA Midland rail line, the release said.

Signs marking detour routes are expected to be posted. The DOT advises motorists to expect traffic delays and to seek alternative routes if possible.
