BUFORD -- All four lanes of Ga. Highway 324 in Buford are scheduled to be reopened Monday.
During the $11.2 million project, a new bridge was built as part of the one-mile long widening of the road and lanes were closed.
Following Monday's morning rush hour, Department of Transportation officials announced Wednesday, work will begin to open all four lanes. The lanes are scheduled to be opened by 5 p.m. at the latest.
While the move will relieve some traffic issues, the work isn't done. The project is "93 percent complete" and scheduled to be fully finished by the end of May.
"Crews will install the permanent striping on the roadway, finish the concrete work in the median, complete dressing the shoulders and grassing, as well as punch list details," Georgia DOT district engineer Bayne Smith said.
