COLUMBIA COUNTY, GA (WFXG) - A Columbia County intersection is now permanently closed.
La Vista Drive at Hereford Farm Road closed permanently at 10 a.m. Thursday. A new roadway has been created off Byrd Road for access to La Vista Drive, Calais Circle and Holly Hill Road, which are in the Calais subdivision.
That will be the only access to Calais subdivision and its roads, Columbia County officials said. Byrd Road is off Cox Road, just north of Evans High School.
The new alignment and routing of La Vista Drive is part of the Hereford Farm Road widening project, officials said. The new roadway alignments and access have been created in order to increase safety and increase the efficiency of the widening project and its associated intersection of Cox Road and Gibbs Road at Hereford Farm Road.
