Weather permitting, the US 278 right turn lane to Highway 101 will be offset from the thru lanes with a painted island next month. The quick response project between Rockmart and Dallas should be completed in about a week and will improve the visibility for vehicles turning on to US 278 from Highway 101. Motorists should expect delays and closures on the route during construction.
WHEN: Beginning Monday, July 6
WHERE: US 278 at Highway 101 between Rockmart and Dallas

  • Advisory:  Motorists are advised to expect delays, exercise caution, and reduce their speed while traveling through work zones. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. Call 511, visit, or download the Georgia 511 app. Our maintenance team members who repair roads and bridges and our project teams who oversee construction projects are continuing their essential work, while following sanitary work practices prescribed by health agencies to protect themselves and the public from the coronavirus, as are most state DOTs in the U.S.
