Update on Wrightsboro Rd. construction

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - FOX 54 has an update on construction for those who travel along Wrightsboro Rd.

Richmond County’s Traffic Construction Management says the construction along Wrightsboro Rd. is 40% complete. Crews are currently in Stage 1 and 2 of widening the roadway. After Stage 1 and 2, they will install curbing in the center and a barrier wall going toward I-520 West. The barrier wall will divide the traffic to make drivers commit to a lane and better traffic flow. From Marks Church Rd. to North Leg Rd., crews are working to resurface and realign the roads.

According to Richmond County Traffic management a lot of accidents have happened in the area and they are hoping accidents will reduce after construction is complete. Construction is expected to be completed between October and December.
