Moon Road widening project underway in N. Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Traffic along Moon Road can be a pain, especially with the new widening project in full swing.

Mark's City Grill Manager Michele Weed says the project is a solution to a major problem.

"For us it's just going to make traffic in and out of here easier and it's going to make life easier for everybody all the business that in this little area," said Weed.

City planning director Rick Jones tell us the project has been in the works for a number of years -- even before Columbus Park Crossing was developed.

Jones says the city figured now is the best time to move ahead with the project.

The new road design is supposed to help ease traffic coming off of Veterans Parkway to Whittlesey Boulevard.

This project is expected to wrap up in about six months.
