A traffic shift will be implemented Thursday to aid in the widening of Athens Highway/U.S. 129/Ga. 11 near the Hall-Jackson county line.

The southbound travel lane will be shifted, removing the center turn lane between A.L. Mangum Road and Blackstock Road, the Georgia Department of Transportation announced Tuesday.

Left-turn lanes will remain at the intersections with Blackstock, Mangum and A.L. Mangum.

The shift will make way for construction of new southbound lanes of U.S. 129/Ga. 11 from A.L. Mangum to the Hall-Jackson line, DOT said in its announcement.
