Previously postponed work on Ga. 53 has been scheduled for this week in downtown Braselton.
Work to repair the drainage pipe underneath Ga. 53 is set for Tuesday and Wednesday.
Maintenance crews with the Georgia Department of Transportation will start cutting into the roadway at 8 a.m. Tuesday, and both lanes will be closed to complete the work through Wednesday evening.
Traffic will be detoured west by way of Davis Street, which will lead them to Ga. 124. The DOT is asking drivers to “use extra caution as you travel through the work zone, (as) there may be delays while traffic becomes familiar with the changes.”
