News Release: City of Valdosta
The City of Valdosta will make road repairs in high traffic areas of the city in the coming weeks. While construction and detours may pose some inconveniences to local motorists, street maintenance is a necessary process in the city’s overall transportation system and keeps our roads safe and in good working order.
The city announces the following repair projects:
- On Monday, April 14, the city will begin road repairs to Jerry Jones Drive, which will require the northbound lane to be closed. Northbound traffic will be detoured onto Gornto Road and then onto Berkley Drive. The detour will end at the intersection of Berkley Drive and Eager Road, where the signal timing will be adjusted in order to help reduce traffic congestion in that area.
- Also on Monday, April 14, road repairs will begin on Eager Road, which will affect traffic in the eastbound lane. Though the road will not be closed, eastbound traffic on Eager Road will be safely managed with flaggers posted at the work zone.
- On Monday, April 21, the city will begin road repairs to both lanes of Clay Road, between the overpass adjacent to ADM and Howell Road. Traffic on Clay Road will be managed with flaggers posted at the work zone.
Each of these projects will take an estimated five working days to complete, weather permitting.
Adequate traffic signage will alert the traveling public and safely direct motorists around these construction sites. Citizens should find alternate routes, if possible; or drive cautiously when traveling through these areas.
