The Georgia Department of Transportation (DOT) is advising motorists in Murray County of a detour off Lucas Road at State Route (SR) 2/US 411, scheduled for Monday, June 2, 2014, to accommodate work on rehabilitating the bridge over CSX railroad. This detour is expected to stay in place until July 27. US 411 at this location will be closed and northbound traffic will be detoured into SR 268 West, SR 225 North, SR 2 East and back to US 411. Southbound traffic will be redirected onto SR 2 West, SR 225 South, SR 286 East and back to US 411 South.

The Georgia DOT urges motorists in Murray County to watch out for the message board at the closing points of US 411 and signs along the detour route. “We certainly hope that all motorists watch out for these detour signs and be extra cautious while approaching this work zone,” said DeWayne Comer, district engineer at the Georgia DOT office in Cartersville.

Work on this project to rehabilitate the bridge on SR 2/Us 411 over CSX railroad in Murray County has just begun and is expected to be completed by the end of September 2014, at a construction cost of nearly $494,975.

Georgia DOT urges travelers to call 511 for updated information about this or any other construction project on interstates and state routes. Georgia 511 is a free phone service that provides real-time traffic and travel information statewide, such as traffic conditions, incidents, lane closures, and delays due to inclement weather. Callers also can transfer to operators to request assistance or report incidents 24 hours a day, seven days a week. More information is available at www.511ga.org.
