Short east-bound stretch of Double Churches Road to close for a month


On Monday, the eastbound lane of Double Churches Road between Fortson Road and Veterans Parkway will be closed for construction work to make improvements at the Double Churches/Veterans intersection.  The lane is expected to be closed for a month.

A detour route will take traffic northbound up Fortson Road, then east on Williams Road to Veterans Parkway.

Westbound traffic on Double Churches Road will not be detoured.  Left and right turns from Veterans Parkway onto Double Churches Road will still be allowed, as well as vehicles continuing straight from the westbound ramp of J. R. Allen Parkway.

Signal timing at the affected intersections will be adjusted to facilitate the additional traffic along the detour route.
