A portion of one lane of North Broad Street in downtown Winder will be closed overnights from Monday-Thursday, April 15-18, for the installation of a water line in the area of the road reconstruction project now under way. Weather permitting, the northbound lane from the railroad crossing to Laura Street will be closed during the nine-hour period of 9 p.m.-6 a.m.
A local company, G. P.’s Enterprises, has a $4.9 million contract with the Georgia Department of Transportation to replace the road surface and road bed of North Broad between the railroad tracks and Stephens Street with pre-cast concrete slabs and also to make streetscape improvements along the sides of the same stretch of roadway.
GDOT will explain the project at a community information session at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 18, at the Winder Community Center. The public is encouraged to attend the meeting. The project isn’t scheduled for completion until July 31, 2014.
