MAJOR TRAFFIC ISSUES AT ALABAMA / GEORGIA STATE LINE

969

BY RICKY PRICE, AL BUGLE

As many of you have noticed, for the past few weeks traffic on I 85 in Georgia has been backed up, due to construction.

Traffic on I 85 was extremely heavy yesterday as it usually is on Friday.

Due to this, a lot of GPS units were putting detours through Lanett and West Point causing a traffic nightmare.

Although there were police directing traffic at some intersections, it was a nightmare.

I hope better plans are being made by the DOT and local law enforcement to remedy this, before it gets like it was yesterday.

It appears the work in Alabama on I 85 is being done at night. That would resolve a lot of issues in Georgia, I would think.

Please be aware of this situation.
