Douglas County…SR 92/Mozley Truck Detour in DouglasvilleContinuation of SR 92 Relocation and Widening Project ATLANTA –Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) contractors will install signage and message boards to direct traffic around on-going construction to relocate and widen State Route 92 through the City of Douglasville, and to provide safety at the closed Norfolk Southern railroad crossing at SR 92 and Mozley Street in the city. Beginning tomorrow, the new detour at SR 92 and Mozley Street will route northbound truck traffic on SR 92 and US 78/Bankhead Highway onto Municipal Parkway; westbound on Industrial Access Road to Huey Rd, right onto Malone Road and then right on SR 92 where trucks will continue north toward Hiram. This route will shorten the length of the detour for trucks, which are currently required to use SR 6 / US 278 C.H. James Parkway to continue north across the railroad tracks. Cars may continue to use the crossing at Dallas Highway/Campbellton Street. Through-trucks are encouraged to avoid the Douglasville area entirely if possible. Trucks with local deliveries should contact the recipient for detailed directions to their destination. To assist with safety and traffic flow, a new traffic signal has been installed at SR 92/Dallas Highway and Malone Road. The detour will be in place for approximately two years as crews construct a new rail underpass and realign the existing train tracks. The construction of the Norfolk Southern rail underpass is part of the work needed to complete GDOT’s extensive four-phase project to widen and realign SR 92 from just south of I-20 in Douglasville north to Nebo Road in the City of Hiram, Paulding County. As always, motorists traveling in the area are reminded to reduce their speeds in the work zone. Motorists are also encouraged to wear seatbelts, eliminate distractions behind the wheel, and plan their routes before getting on the road by calling 511 for real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. ###
