[ARCHIVED] Overnight Lane Closures on US 278/SR 8/Veterans Memorial Hwy this Weekend for Resurfacing


ATLANTA– Contractors for the Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) will install lane closures on US 278/SR 8/Veterans Memorial Highway in Cobb County this weekend from the Douglas County line to the Fulton County line, approximately 8 miles, to continue milling, inlay and resurfacing activities. Resurfacing improves the condition of the deteriorating roadway.

Weather and on-site conditions permitting, single alternating right and left lanes will be closed on SR 8 eastbound and westbound each weekend night beginning Friday, September 24 from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. the following mornings. Work crews will be applying thermo striping to the roadway. The project is scheduled for completion in winter 2022.

As always, motorists traveling in the area are reminded to reduce their speeds in the work zone. Motorists are also encouraged to wear seatbelts, eliminate distractions behind the wheel, and plan their routes before getting on the road by calling 511 for real-time information on work status and traffic conditions.

The Georgia Department of Transportation is committed to providing a safe, seamless, and sustainable transportation system that supports Georgia’s economy and is sensitive to both its citizens and its environment.
