Drivers might want to avoid the intersection of Veterans Parkway and Double Churches Road Thursday.
The eastbound lane of Double Churches between Veterans and Fortson Road/Northlake Drive has been closed for a couple of weeks and will remain closed for another three weeks for improvements. On Thursday, the westbound lane in that section will also be closed between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. for work related to the railroad crossing there.
The eastbound lane that is already closed will remain closed, so the entire section will be blocked during that six-hour period.
A detour route for westbound vehicles will be established along Veterans Parkway northbound, Williams Road westbound, and Fortson Road southbound. Signal timing at the affected intersections will be adjusted to facilitate the additional traffic along the detour route.
