Public Works Project Update – March 21, 2016

The Gordon County Public Works Department has recently finished up The Hall Memorial Rd Resurfacing project, with stripping to be done 30 days after paving, weather permitting, to allow the asphalt to cure.

Dews Pond Rd, Lovers Lane Rd, Belwood Rd, Erwin St, and Booneford Rd received upgrades in signage and stripping over the past couple of weeks, through a Georgia Department of Transportation Safety Grant.

Dews Pond Road – September 28, 2015

The Dews Pond Road Project is well underway with the resurfacing of the road being completed.  Over the next two weeks, the Gordon County Public Works Department will oversee the temporary striping.  This is not the permanent thermoplastic striping.  The temporary striping is to give a better dedication of lanes than the current marking tape and to give a layout for the future thermoplastic striping. The resurfacing and temporary striping are Gordon County SPLOST funded projects.

The remaining work of this project includes: thermoplastic striping, new signage, and raised permanent markers.  These three areas of work are all Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) Safety Grant projects and GDOT will oversee the contractors to carry out these areas of work.  The Gordon County Public Works Department estimates that the GDOT Safety Grant projects will be completed by July 2016.

Please contact the Gordon County Public Works Department at 706-629-2785 if you have any questions.



Dews Pond Road – August 17, 2015 9:53 a.m.

Northwest Georgia paving began resurfacing Dews Pond Road last night.  Due to an equipment related delay, they were unable to wrap up by 6:00 a.m. as planned.

The problem was caused by a malfunctioning Spreader that could not be repaired on the spot.  A replacement had to be brought in during the early morning hours to spread the asphalt that had already been delivered to the work site.

The situation resulted in unexpected traffic delays from approximately 6:00 a.m. until the work concluded at 8:30 a.m.  This was an unfortunate occurrence that we trust will not happen again.

Gordon County anticipates resurfacing the Dews Pond Road between Sunday August 16th and Saturday August 22nd.  This project will be funded by 2012 SPLOST revenue and by funds received through the State’s local maintenance improvement grant.

This is an important and necessary project on our busiest county road.  To reduce inconvenience, all resurfacing will occur during the overnight hours between 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.  A pilot car will be used to keep the traffic moving, with one lane remaining open at all times.  Drivers are asked to use caution in the work zones and use alternate routes when possible.

Once this project is completed, the County will be installing high visibility thermoplastic striping, which is an improvement over the existing striping.

Northwest Georgia Paving was awarded the project with the successful low bid.  Gordon County is pleased that the work will be performed by a local company.
