People driving in the Bullsboro Drive-Shenandoah Boulevard area can expect delays starting this fall as construction to expand the turn lanes and gore zone, the striped area between the turn lane and the traffic, begin.

The Georgia Department of Transportation on July 1 awarded Piedmont Paving’s bid for the project, which is expected to be completed by June 30, 2023.

Andrew Trammell, project manager at Piedmont Paving, said the company will also work on crosswalks and islands at the intersection. Trammell said he doesn’t have an exact start date, but expects the project to take at least eight months.

The company will provide traffic control during construction, but it does not expect any major delays.

“For the most part we will be working off the tracks,” Trammell said. “It shouldn’t be major delays, but there will be delays.”

The project is listed as a security improvement by GDOT.

“The project will offset the eastbound and westbound center turn lanes on SR 34/Bullsboro Dr. providing better sight distance for vehicles in the left-turn lane,” said GDOT spokesperson Gina Snider. by email. “Project improvements will take place within the existing grassed median and will include the replacement of existing traffic lights, signage and strips within the project boundaries.”

Trammell said the idea is to increase the number of vehicles that can enter the turn lanes to Shenandoah and to Yamaha to allow for smoother traffic.

The cost of the project will be $1,051,208. The Coweta County project is one of 37 projects awarded by GDOT on July 1 for a total of $199 million. There were $6 million in security projects on the prize list.
