Crews with Reeves Construction Company of Macon, Georgia will start work on a project to resurface the asphalt roadway of Georgia 49 from Georgia 27/E. Lamar Street in Americus to the Macon County line, just south of Andersonville, on Monday, Mar. 1, 2021, weather permitting. 

The crews will be active daily from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. A work zone will be established around the crews while they are in the roadway. A lane of traffic will be closed while the work zone is in effect. Temporary signage will also be placed in advance of the lane closure, and drivers are urged to slow their speeds and be alert to the crews and their equipment while passing the work zone.

The project will start with patching various locations along the highway, and then the crews and their large machinery will proceed to the full asphalt resurfacing. The contractor expects to complete the paving by the start of May, 2021.
