GDOT Awards Highway 20 Project
Georgia Department of Transportation officials say the project to widen Highway 20 in Cartersville and Bartow County could begin soon.
The agency awarded an almost $8 million contract for the construction, which includes the realignment of Bells Ferry Road.
Crews will widen and reconstruct truck passing lanes along 1.729 miles of Highway 20, beginning east of Timberlake Cove Road and extending to just west of Bells Ferry Road.
The project is scheduled to be complete by the end of September 2014. Information on construction and lane closure schedules will be forthcoming before work begins.
