IMPROVEMENTS AHEAD FOR EAST JACKSON STREET

Posted on

The City of Thomasville has announced an improvement project for East Jackson Street. Beginning the week of December 11th, 2017, East Jackson Street from Pinetree Boulevard to Crawford Street will be re-striped. This will include all lane lines, turn arrows, stop bars and crosswalks.

“The City of Thomasville applied for and received funding in the amount of $100,000 through the Georgia Department of Transportation’s Local Maintenance Improvement Grant,” said Wayne Newsome, Assistant City Engineer. “The project will include re-striping only; there are no lane reductions or other road changes included in this or any other project involving East Jackson Street.”

Newsome said that the enhancements to East Jackson Street will greatly enhance driver awareness. “The goal of this project is to improve driver safety along this heavily used roadway by enhancing visibility,” said Newsome.

During the construction phase, lanes may be temporarily reduced as re-striping occurs. “We understand the work may be inconvenient to motorists, residents and business owners,” said Newsome. “Our crews will work as quickly as possible to reopen any temporary closures so that the impact is lessened as much as possible.”

The project is expected to take approximately one week to complete.
