COLUMBIA COUNTY, GA (WFXG) - Two roads that intersect with Columbia Road are shifting slightly as part of a widening project.

At 6:30 a.m. Monday, the new North Belair Road and Shepherd Way will be accessible from Columbia Road. The old North Belair Road entrance will move west slightly, and the Sheperd Way entrance will shift east slightly.

The contractor will close the old sections of those road, and they will be removed.

The changes are part of the widening and reconstruction of Columbia Road from Old Belair Road to Belair Road. When finished, the road will have two 12-foot lanes in each direction separated by a median. Bike lanes will also be constructed.
