CUMMING - Georgia DOT is working with C.W. Matthews Contracting to finish work and open new lanes on the State Route 141/Bethelview Road at State Route 9 intersection improvement project and on the Bethelview Road widening project.

“I wanted to give you an update on the projects so you know what we are working on now and what to expect as these projects finish this summer," said DOT District Engineer Bayne Smith. "The intersection project at State Route 9 and SR 141/Bethelview will finish first. Its completion date is July 29 and the contractor expects to finish by then if weather cooperates.

Smith added that crews are paving nightly this week, working toward shifting traffic on SR 9 overnight this Sunday, 20th. "Monday morning State Route 9 will be in its final location and open up both lanes in each direction for SR 9 traffic. It will also open up all the turning lanes from SR 9 onto SR 141 towards SR 400 vastly improving traffic flow in the area! Crews still have to build up the base and then pave before opening the additional lanes on 141.”

“The Bethelview widening from State Route 9 to Castleberry Road is a separate project with its own contract and its completion date is September 6," Smith said. "After paving finishes up and SR 9 traffic is shifted, the paving crew will move to Bethelview. Right now crews are installing the base layer to support the coming asphalt on Bethelview and finishing up earthwork to set the new grade of Castleberry."

He said that next week, work on the new concrete median on Bethelview will begin. "Most of the sidewalks are finished except at crosswalks where ramps for wheelchairs will be put in place. Finishing by September 6 or sooner is our goal but it is dependent on weather and resolution of a conflict in a water line at Westcroft Lane.”
