Turner Lake Road will be closed June 9 for up to six months, for construction of the long-awaited roundabout project, according to a Georgia Department of Transportation press release.
The official detour will use Washington Street/Ga. Highway 81, West Street and Clark Street. The detour will be signed and advance warning signs and barricades will be located at intersections prior to the closure.
Turner Lake Complex will still be able to be accessed via Clark Street and Old Clark Street.
Jje Constructors is the contract on the project, which was let through GDOT. Federal stimulus money is expected to pay for all of the nearly $1 million price tag.
