GAINESVILLE - The Georgia Department of Transportation says all lanes of one section of Friendship Road/State Route 347, part of the widening of the road, will be open by 10:00 Monday morning, weather permitting.<br />
Its the stretch of road from State Route 211 to Spout Springs Road and is part of the widening of the road from 211 to I-985.<br />
However, GDOT say intermittent lane closures will occur during the day next week in the newly opened lanes as "punch list" work is finished.<br />
