October 23--  The Georgia Department of Transportation is alerting motorists to upcoming one-lane traffic at the intersection of U.S. One and Highway 130 north of Lyons.

"This Monday October 29 through Thursday, November 1, motorists should prepare for possible traffic disruptions and delays due to north and southbound lane closures at the intersection of U.S. 1 and new realigned section of Georgia 130. 

The closures, which will begin on U.S. 1, will accommodate construction for a new realigned section of S.R. 130 approach to U.S. 1 and join the new realigned section of S.R. 130 to the current roadway of S.R. 130.

The new realignment of S.R. 130 will be opened to traffic Thursday, November 1, if weather permits construction to stay on schedule. The new realignment section of S.R. 130 is part of the U.S.1/S.R. 4 widening project in Toombs County.

Planned closures are as follows:

8 AM - 5 PM; Monday, October 29

Single lane closure on U.S. 1/S.R. 4 near the intersection of S.R. 130

8 AM - 7 PM Tuesday, October 30 - Thursday, November 1 Single lane closure on S.R. 130 near the intersection of U.S.1/S.R. 4

Georgia DOT crews will lead both north and southbound motorists through this work zone with a pilot vehicle while the northbound U.S. 1/S.R. 4 and S.R. 130 lane closures are in place. Motorists should pay close attention to the instructions of the flagmen and the Georgia DOT pilot vehicle and do not attempt to pass the pilot vehicle.

This is a WORK ZONE and extreme caution is necessary.  Motorists are advised to reduce speeds as they travel through this construction work zone and expect delays in this area. Message signs, barrels and/or cones will be utilized to alert the public of the upcoming changes. Drivers should be aware that personnel and equipment will be operating in close proximity to travel lanes. Because of possible lengthy delays motorists are strongly urged to use alternate routes if possible."
