A local area detour will maneuver passenger vehicles immediately around the closure, but drivers of large trucks will be directed to utilize the Newnan Bypass.

Motorists are advised to expect delays, exercise caution, and reduce their speed while traveling through the area. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions.
