Work is scheduled to begin Monday on the rehabilitation of the pavement section for Newnan Crossing Bypass.
The limits of the project are from the Georgia Department of Transportation right-of-way at State Route 34/ Bullsboro Drive southward to Lower Fayetteville Road, said Gina Snider, city public information officer.
This work includes milling the existing pavement structure in the travel lanes to a depth of 4.5 inches and in the turn lanes to a depth of 1.5 inches, and constructing one or more courses of bituminous plant mixture on the prepared milled roadway surface.
Thermoplastic traffic stripe and raised pavement markers are included.
The vehicle detectors for the traffic signals along Newnan Crossing Bypass will be removed in the milling phase, so for the next several weeks, the traffic signals will be operating in a pre-timed mode, manually adjusted to optimize traffic flow. A traffic engineer will be on the project to make adjustments as needed.
At the conclusion of the paving, new detectors will be installed and all of the signals along Newnan Crossing Bypass will be linked together and able to communicate, maximizing efficient traffic flow for the mainline and the intersection streets and driveways.

There are no restrictions on work hours, however, at this point, the contractor is planning to work from 7 p.m to 7 a.m. At least one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction for the duration of the project. There will be detours set up for intersecting streets and driveways as work progresses.

Work is scheduled to be completed by Nov. 23.

The first section of Newnan Crossing Bypass was originally opened to traffic 2003. An approximate average annual daily traffic count, AADT, for Newnan Crossing Bypass is 17,043 vehicles.
