GDOT Working On Highway 53

Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), beginning July 17, is working on a project on a portion of Highway 53 to change the road's configuration. The area is near Buddy Burt Road. GDOT is working to straighten out a curve to make the "super elevation" correct for the “new” radius. GDOT also is changing the three lane to a two lane with a two-way left turn lane. Work is expected to be completed by July 20.
