Road construction on SR 81 in Newton County

press release from Georgia Department of Transportation

State Route 81 left turn construction at State Route 142 starts next week 

COVINGTON- Next week Georgia Department of Transportation Quick Response funded left-turn lane construction from State Route (SR) 81 onto SR 142 will affect the traveling public.

This intersection is used by a high volume of motorists heading to Interstate 20 and will improve safety by separating turning movements from those passing through. Work could last around 3 weeks depending on weather. Expect daily delays in the work zone.

The Quick Response Program supports operational projects such as re-striping, intersection improvements, turn lane additions and extensions that can be implemented in a short period of time and for under $200,000.

Whenever you approach a work zone: slow down; allow extra distance between vehicles; read signs; obey road crew flaggers; and expect the unexpected.

Citizens should monitor or download the App to stay current on all upcoming roadwork and projects. Georgia DOT East on Facebook and @GDOTEastTraffic on Twitter also provide daily updates.
