Brandon Mill At Abernathy to Temporarily Open in Mid-December

Release Date: 11/19/2010

November 19, 2010—Work originally scheduled to be complete this week on Brandon Mill and Abernathy Roads has been delayed. Utility relocation setbacks by Georgia Power, AT&T and Comcast have not allowed contractor CW Matthews to progress with the construction as planned.

The Georgia Department of Transportation is allowing a temporary opening that should be completed in mid-December contingent upon good weather. CW Matthews will install a signal and pave as much as possible to allow right and left turns from Brandon Mill Road onto Abernathy Road and full turns into Brandon Mill Road from Abernathy Road.

This temporary opening will allow the utility companies to continue to work in the area. In early 2011, the utility work will be completed. CW Matthews will then do a short closure (less than a week) of Brandon Mill Road, and then open it to full service with the planned traffic shift.
