Crews to shift traffic lanes for Ga. 20 project

LAWRENCEVILLE - Construction crews will have to move traffic on a side street this week to work on the $26.8 million widening of Ga. Highway 20.

Today, crews plan to move traffic on Cooper Road and Ozora Road to allow for construction of a culvert

"By scooting traffic over we will have room to work where the roads are right now," Georgia Department of Transportation District Engineer Russell McMurry said. "Cooper will scoot to the left of its current position and Ozora will scoot to the right of its current position. Please slow down and give yourself extra time to travel through the work zone as conditions are continually changing."
