Highway 54 detour in place for work beginning today
Georgia Highway 54 near Gordon Road in Coweta will be closed starting April 21 and continuing through June 21 for work by Georgia Department of Transportation.
GDOT crews will be working to raise the roadbed to eliminate a dangerous sight distance problem, according to Tom Corker, communications director for Coweta County.
Local detours are available in addition to the official GDOT detour, and signs will be posted.
The official GDOT detour keeps drivers on state highways and is quite long, sending drivers to Luthersville, Moreland and Sharpsburg. Two much shorter detours are available. Motorists can take Tope Road to Canon Road to Moore Road to Gordon Road and back to Hwy. 54, or Bertus Hunter Road, Sid Hunter Road, and Gordon Road, back to Hwy. 54.
