GAINESVILLE - Resurfacing of State Route 11/Cleveland Highway from the Hall/White county line through Cleveland to the intersection with Allison Drive/Kennemer Street is scheduled to begin Tuesday.
The first phase of work is to remove damaged asphalt and rebuilding those sections from the roadway base up. A pilot vehicle will be used to direct traffic through the work zone and delays are expected as work occurs. However, all work will be done at night fro 7:00 p.m.-6:00 a.m.
The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) says this section of roadway was last resurfaced in 1998 and the pavement is damaged and needs replacing. The work will not include the section of SR 11 that is being reconstructed as part of the Cleveland Bypass.
This 7.4-mile project was awarded to Colditz Trucking for a contract cost of $2.07 million and should be finished by March 31, 2014.
NOTE: This project was originally scheduled to begin Monday, September 9, but the DOT changed the date to Tuesday, September 10.
