GEORGIA DOT BEGINS PAVEMENT EDGE REPAIR
ON THREE HIGHWAYS IN BARTOW COUNTY
WHAT: A Georgia DOT’s Maintenance crew begins today to work on repairing the deteriorating edges of
pavement on State Route (SR) 20, SR 20 Spur and SR 3 in Bartow County. Work will proceed daily
between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., weather permitting.
Edge repair is a maintenance activity that is intended to guard against pavement failure along the
edges due to the action of traffic and the loss of edge support that occurs due to the presence of water,
aggressive-growth vegetation, and wind from either traffic or the atmosphere. Georgia DOT’s edge
repairs are designed to minimize the effects of shoulder drop offs and maximize the safety of the
roadway for the traveling public.
WHEN: Tuesday, January 6 through Friday, January 9, 2014 from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
WHERE: SR 20, SR 20 Spur and SR 3 in Bartow County
