COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) -If you usually drive along 2nd Ave. in Columbus between the late evening and early morning hours, you may need to find a new route.

Maintenance crews with the Georgia Department of Transportation will be cleaning the bridge in the section of road between 17th St. and Railroad Ave.

The project will be undertaken during the overnight hours in an attempt to disturb as few drivers as possible.

The right lanes in each direction and shoulders will be closed, allowing drivers access to the inside lanes.

Crews will be out between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. starting Monday, June 10. The project is expected to be completed on Friday, June 14.

Drivers are being asked to proceed with caution and slow down while crews are at work.
