GDOT:  Work Could Soon Begin on Resurfacing Hwy 27 in Carroll County

Work could begin soon on resurfacing US 27/State Route 1 in Carroll County. Georgia DOT has recently awarded a contract to C.W. Matthews Contracting Co., Inc. of Marietta, Georgia, valued at little over two million dollars for a construction project to resurface a portion of the highway in Carroll County. The project includes 2.2 miles of milling, inlay and plant mix resurfacing on US 27, beginning north of Springdale Road and extending to Maple Street in Carroll County.

“This project and others like it in northwest Georgia add up to these two things – better mobility and better quality of life for all our residents,” said Grant Waldrop, district engineer at the Georgia DOT office in White.

This resurfacing project is scheduled to be completed by the end of February 2020, at a construction cost of $2,189,906. Information on construction and lane closure schedules on this project will be forthcoming before work begins.

The Georgia Department of Transportation continues its 2019 construction program.  Dozens of important roadway improvement projects are ongoing this spring throughout northwest Georgia as we work to deliver projects on time and on budget while keeping our transportation network the nation’s finest. Pardon the necessary inconvenience and please drive cautiously and safely at all times, especially in work zones.

The public is urged to “know before you go.” For real-time information on active construction, incidents and more, call 511 or visit www511ga.org before you get into your car.

Roadway work zones are hazardous for workers and for the public. In fact, most fatalities in work zones crashes are drivers or passengers. Obey the rules in work zones – Pay Attention – Slow Down – Watch for Workers.  And always, expect the unexpected. It can make the difference between life and death. Remember – work zone safety is in your hands.
