COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Your commute to work or lunch on Thursday could be affected by some scheduled lane closures in Columbus.

The Georgia Department of Transportation notified us of lanes being closed on Veterans Parkway on Thursday, July 21 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., between Tower Road and American Way Road, near Northside High School and Calvary Christian School.

Contractors will be removing internet cables from existing power sources. The work could take longer, weather permitting.

Georgia DOT officials are asking drivers to "use caution, reduce their speed and be alert to changing traffic conditions in work zones. Flaggers will be used to assist motorists through the work zone."
