COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Construction work is underway along a section of Wynnton Road in Columbus.
The work is part of the Streetscape Project designed to transform a half-mile section of Wynnton Road from Cedar to Hilton Avenues.
Sidewalks and a portion of Wynnton Road are closed which is making it extremely difficult to get through the area on foot.
Metra Transit System says that buses should be making normal stops in the area despite the construction.
The project is expected to take at least a year to complete. When it's done, there will be new sidewalks, crosswalks, lighting, and landscaping.
