Beginning Monday, January 30, 2017, the City of Thomasville will begin repairing the brick pavers on West Jackson Street from South Madison to Remington Avenue. As a result, this section of West Jackson Street will be closed to thru traffic.

“The historic pavers in this section of downtown Thomasville were uncovered a few years ago,” said Wayne Newsome. “Our goal in performing this maintenance is to hopefully create smoother travel through this area. The process involves repositioning numerous bricks in several locations by hand.”

During the construction, businesses along this section of downtown Thomasville will remain open. Traffic will be directed around the construction zone onto Remington Avenue, Lee Street, and Jefferson Street. Construction is expected to take about a week, with an anticipated completion date of Sunday, February 5th.

“The City of Thomasville recognizes the inconvenience this work poses to both the traveling public and businesses along this segment of West Jackson Street,” said Newsome. “While this construction will interrupt travel, it will not interrupt business.”

Newsome said that citizens can park along alternate routes and walk to businesses in this section. He said that as soon as construction is complete, the roadway will be reopened.
