Valdosta -- August 3 --
Drainage improvements will continue on Lake Laurie Drive, between Old Vine Way and the Boys & Girls Club facility, due to recent rain delays. The portion of the road will continue to be closed between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. until the project is completed. The road will be reopened for Sallas Mahone Elementary School’s open house on Thursday and for buses and school-related traffic on Friday morning and afternoon.
The improvements, which include slip lining the four existing storm pipes and replacing the sand bag headwalls with concrete, began on July 25 but have been delayed twice due to heavy rains in our area.
Motorists are urged to pay close attention to traffic conditions and to drive with caution in this area or seek alternate routes, if possible. For more information, contact the Stormwater Division at (229) 259-3530.
