Georgia DOT announces a detour to facilitate the reconstruction of the intersection at State Route 141/Peachtree Parkway and Bagley Road. The Bagley Road side of the intersection with SR 141 will close on Thursday, February 12 and is scheduled to reopen to traffic Friday, March 13, weather permitting.

“As part of the $50 million widening of the SR 141 reconstruction project under way, we will completely rework the intersection of 141 and Bagley Road,” explained Georgia DOT District Engineer Russell McMurry. “The grade of Bagley Road will be raised five feet to improve the sight distance a driver can see from Bagley turning onto the State Route. In order to do this work as quickly as possible, we will close the intersection for 30 days. If you are on SR 141 and need to get to Bagley Road, the detour route will be SR 141 to Mathis Airport Road to Bagley Road.”

Georgia DOT urges travelers to call 511 for updated information about this or any other construction project on interstates and state routes. Georgia 511 is a free phone service that provides real-time traffic and travel information statewide, such as traffic conditions, incidents, lane closures, and delays due to inclement weather. Callers also can transfer to operators to request assistance or report incidents 24 hours a day, seven days a week. More information is available at www.511ga.org.
