GDOT to begin paving Eagle Drive Sunday night

COVINGTON, Ga. - Starting 7 p.m. Sunday, Georgia Department of Transportation will begin nightly road closures on State Route 36/Eagle Drive for a repaving project. 

The closures will run from north of Hummingbird Lane to north of Scenic Parkway and are restricted to 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday night through Friday mornings, according to a GDOT news release.

The $1.38 million project granted to E.R. Snell Contractor includes the following sequence in this 2.3-mile area:

  • Patching and building two-foot paved shoulder
  • Milling areas, which will consist of a rock course topped with asphalt
  • Final asphalt topping of riding course
  • Building grassed shoulders

Completion is set for July 2019, though the major roadway work should finish before the end of May.
