Sandy Creek Rd. closed as bypass intersection work continues

Work on the temporary closure and reconfiguration of the intersection at Sandy Creek Road and the West Fayetteville Bypass that began Monday will continue through the end of the week.

Once completed, Sandy Creek will be re-opened but the bypass will remain closed until the traffic signal at Ga. Highway 54 becomes operational later this month.

Fayette County Public Works Director Phil Mallon said access to the portion of Sandy Creek Road between Hood Avenue and the Sandy Creek Road entrance to the hospital will be limited to residents living within the closure area.

The detour plan for the affected portion of Sandy Creek Road shows motorists using Tyrone Road and Flat Creek Trail as alternative routes.
