Crews contracted with the Georgia DOT will be resurfacing the asphalt on roadways at the courthouse square in Greenville, Georgia, starting tomorrow, Saturday, Aug. 16 and continuing through the end of the month. The work is part of a larger project to resurface Georgia 18 in Meriwether County starting at the Harris County line, but at the Greenville courthouse square, the affected roads also include Georgia 109, Georgia 41, Georgia 100, North Depot Street and South Depot Street.
The team will start Saturday morning, Aug. 17, south on Georgia 18 and work their way to the square. On Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 18, the work will be done from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. On Monday, Aug.19, the crew will transition to overnight shifts, from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. and continue their paving in and around the square, curb to curb.
A lane closure will be installed around the work zone. Signal flaggers will be stationed to alert motorists, and a pilot car will be used to guide them around the work zone on the remaining lane of traffic. Drivers should watch for the signal flaggers, and should drive slowly and carefully when following the pilot vehicle. Local residents may wish to seek alternate routes avoiding the courthouse square if possible.
