Work to completely overhaul a portion of McEver Road in Flowery Branch has been delayed due to winter weather in the area.

Crews were originally set to begin the project, which stretches from the city limits of Buford to the city limits of Oakwood, or near Rafe Banks Drive, on Tuesday. Crews are now expected to begin work later this week on the road reclamation process using recycled materials.

Work will take place mainly from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, weather permitting, according to the county.

“Traffic will be reduced to one lane while crews work, and we do want to warn drivers that they may encounter loose gravel in the area,” Hall County Engineer Kevin McInturff said.

“There will be flaggers in the area to direct traffic, as well as additional law enforcement personnel to make sure the transition goes as smoothly as possible.”

The work is expected to take about two months to complete.
