COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - On Monday, Jan. 18, the eastbound lane of Double Churches Road between Fortson Road and Veterans Parkway will be closed to accommodate construction work for improvements at the Double Churches/Veterans intersection.
The closure is expected to remain in effect for approximately one month.
A detour route for eastbound vehicles will be established along Fortson Road northbound, Williams Road eastbound, and Veterans Parkway westbound.
Westbound traffic on Double Churches Road will not be detoured.
Left and right turns from Veterans Parkway onto Double Churches Road will still be allowed, as well as vehicles continuing straight from the westbound ramp of J.R. Allen Parkway.
Signal timing at the affected intersections will be adjusted to facilitate the additional traffic volumes along the detour route.
