Motorists who use S.R. 20 at Bells Ferry Road near White in Bartow County as part of their daily commutes may want to use an alternate starting on Monday.

The Georgia Department of Transportation on Monday will begin work to lower the grade of the existing roadway at the intersection. The work will result in a traffic shift for motorists who utilize the thoroughfare. 

“We certainly hope that all motorists watch out for this traffic shift and be extra cautious, while approaching this work zone,” said DeWayne Comer, district engineer at the DOT office in Cartersville. “This project may be causing the public some inconvenience, but upon completion, it will improve the flow of traffic S.R. 20, make it safer, and help the public get where they need to go in Bartow County. 

The project is part of a 1.7-mile project that includes widening and the addition of truck passing lanes on Highway 20 between east of Timberlake Cove Road and to the west of Bells Ferry Road. It also includes realigning Bells Ferry Road.

The project, which costs $7.76 million, started in March 2012 and is expected to wrap up by September of this year.
