Log Cabin Road Closures

Log Cabin Road Closures

On Tuesday and Wednesday, February 25 and 26, there will be single lane closures on Log Cabin Road near the bridge from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. as crews take core samples.

These samples are the precursor for design and construction of the road improvements from Alton Avenue to just past Emily Street. Improvements include street repair, improving and adding sidewalks, and improving storm drainage, and are being funded by the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) that was approved by voters in November 2010.

“We asked for these specific times for the closures so as to minimize the impact to traffic during the morning and evening as people went to and from work,” says Nigel Floyd, Macon-Bibb Traffic Engineer.

ATLANTA (WXIA) -- The Georgia Department of Transportation has created 16 new Twitter accounts for traffic alerts throughout the state.

Each feed is tailored to a specific highway or region, according to GDOT spokeswoman Chata Spikes.

Spikes told 11Alive only serious accidents will be tweeted, as opposed to every single stall and fender bender on the highways.
