Morgan and Oconee counties…
Resurfacing, restriping on US 441 beginning soon
The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has awarded a $2.5 million maintenance project to address the deteriorating infrastructure occurring on State Route (SR) 24/US 441. The project will consist of milling, resurfacing and restriping from the Morgan County line to just north of Thomas Farm Road in Bishop.
GDOT expects a 12-month resurfacing project timeframe, weather permitting, once notice to proceed is provided to the Pittman Construction Company of Conyers, Ga. The typical paving season is from March through November.
This maintenance project is a separate effort from the Bishop Bypass and the project that includes the corridor from the Madison Bypass to the Watkinsville Bypass (Morgan and Oconee counties). These projects are just beginning the concept development phase and are not scheduled to be let to construction until sometime around 2021.
“There is great importance for us to maintain our roads and bridges and advance safety projects throughout the state,” said Northeast District Engineer Brent Cook. “This project is an example of our commitment to improving deteriorating infrastructure in a timely fashion to ensure the safety of the traveling public and to provide efficient mobility for continued growth.”
Stay tuned for updated information on the status and construction schedule as that information becomes available. If you have questions regarding the US 441 Improvements, email US441Improvements@dot.ga.gov.
