Mowers Hit U.S. 41 in Bartow
Georgia Department of Transportation work crews this week will be working the roadsides between 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
Traffic may slow on U.S. 41 in Cartersville as the Georgia Department of Transportation’s maintenance crews mow roadsides today through Thursday between 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., weather permitting.
Each day, hundreds of Georgia Department of Transportation employees and contractors work on dozens of highway, bridge and intersection improvements throughout the state.
Their work often brings them and heavy machinery in close proximity to travel lanes. Fifty-seven Georgia DOT personnel and many more motorists, passengers and contractors’ workers have been killed in highway work zone accidents since 1973.
Help prevent these tragedies by slowing down; being especially attentive and cautious as you pass through construction work zones; and always driving responsibly.
