THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WCTV) -- The City of Thomasville is tackling several transportation projects this week.

Drivers can spot bumpy roads and construction on a portion of Remington Avenue. City officials say there are two different ongoing projects.

One project is adding an 8-foot trail that connects Paradise Park to the downtown amphitheater for their future community trail. Once the entire trail is complete, it will connect all 17 city parks, and residents will be able to enjoy a 15-mile stretch for walking and biking.

"It completes the entire phase one and it's our first true connection that we have park-to-park. It's so important and the community can see what an amenity this is going to be," said Eve Geyer, the Project Manager over the Community Trail.

The second project on Remington is improving a portion of the road that ends into West Jackson Street.

Crews are milling pavement until Friday. On Monday, repaving will begin and the area will be closed to drivers while the pavement dries.

Drivers can expect traffic detours and delays. The City hopes to have the projects done within the next two weeks before the Victorian Christmas Festival.
