VALDOSTA – A section of State Route (SR) 125/Bemiss Road in Lowndes County is about to get a $3 million upgrade with nighttime resurfacing scheduled to start Monday, May 10.
The contractor will mill and resurface a little more than eight miles of road, from SR 7/Inner Perimeter Road to just north of Hightower Road near Moody Air Force Base. Milling is the removal of the top layer of asphalt, which eliminates imperfections prior to resurfacing.
Work will be done from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. to minimize traffic interruptions on the busy road. Motorists are reminded to follow the posted speed limit within the work zone and stay alert for lane closures, workers and equipment. The current completion date is Aug. 31.
