Georgia Department of Transportation - On Monday, July 23, the intersection of State Route 369 (SR 369) and State Route 400 (SR 400) will be closed to traffic. This will allow a three-day resurfacing project to be completed before the school year begins.

This work will require traffic to be detoured on Monday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Georgia DOT will set up the detour preceding the intersection of SR 369 and SR 400 at SR 306 (Keiths Bridge Road) and SR 9 to direct drivers around the work zone.

This detour pertains to SR 369 only. One lane of SR 400 northbound and southbound will be open to traffic. State Route 400 will not be closed. 

•             Eastbound traffic on SR 369 will be detoured by way of SR 9 to SR 306 (Keith Bridge Road) 

•             Westbound traffic on SR 369 will turn on SR 306 (Keith Bridge Road) and then SR 9  

Crews will complete the resurfacing of the main intersection of SR 369 at SR 400 on Monday. On Tuesday, crews will pave the inside lanes along SR 400. On Wednesday, crews will finish the job with the outside lanes. Tuesday and Wednesday's work will require single lane closures on SR 400 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
