Ft. Benning: Access control point to close for renovations

 

Press Release

FORT BENNING, GA -
The access control point on Custer Road will be closed throughout the holidays, Dec. 18-Jan. 4, for renovations. 

The project was scheduled at a time when many post residents and civilian employees will be on leave to minimize traffic delays, said Dave Benefield, an engineer with the post's Directorate of Public Works. 

Work will continue at the Custer Road site until Feb. 1, with minimal interference to traffic, after the ACP is reopened.

The Custer Road ACP renovation is one of several road construction projects announced earlier this week by the DPW.   In each project, measures will be taken to reduce impacts on traffic.

Work on the access control point on Sunshine Road near the Eddy Bridge will begin Monday, weather permitting.  Traffic will be rerouted for short periods of time as work progresses on the project, which will be completed in two phases, Monday-Dec. 17 and Feb. 1-March 1.

Renovations on the Benning Boulevard ACP will begin in March and last about two months.  Contractors will start their workday at 9 a.m., so as not to impede morning rush hour traffic, Benefield said.  Alternating lanes will be closed during the work day. 

Outbound lanes will not be affected at the Benning Boulevard site, nor at the Lindsay Creek/I-185 ACP, which is expected to undergo renovations May 1 – Aug. 1.  Much of the work on that site will take place after work hours and over night.  Alternating lanes will be closed as work progresses.
