Winder, Ga., -On Thursday, July 23, construction partners with Georgia DOT will close Barrow Park Drive to traffic, as part of the continued construction of the West Winder Bypass project.
Detour signage will be in place along the route to direct motorists and those traveling to the Courthouse will need to use Pearl Pentecost Road for access. This closure and detour will last for the next 9 months.
This project proposes to realign SR 211 over SR 8 and the railroad in Winder onto the existing Patrick Mill Road. The construction process will occur in three phases. This project was awarded to E.R. Snell Contractor, Inc. in August 2018 for approximately $59 million.
