Work on the final leg of the four-lane Thurmon Tanner Parkway in Oakwood has gotten to the point where Oakwood Road, a main connector between Mundy Mill Road and Main Street, is set to close Tuesday for three months.
The project includes reconstruction of Oakwood Road.
Teri Pope, Georgia Department of Transportation’s Gainesville-based District 1 spokesman, has said the "contract allows 90 days for the work, but we hope it is (completed) much sooner."
The detour route for Oakwood Road traffic east of Thurmon Tanner is Ga. 53/Mundy Mill Road to Mundy Mill Drive to Oakwood Road. The detour route for Oakwood Road traffic west of Thurmon Tanner is Mundy Mill Road to Old Oakwood Road and then Main Street to Oakwood Road.
The $6.7 million project, set for a Dec. 31 completion, is about 35 percent complete.
Thurmon Tanner’s final 1.3-mile leg runs between Mundy Mill and Plainview roads.
