Arch work closes lanes for morning commute

They hope the early hours will prevent lanes from being closed too long and increase worker safety

On your way out the door Sunday morning, make sure you leave in plenty of time to allow for some traffic lane closures.

Engineers will be replacing the LED lights on the arch at West Oglethorpe Sunday morning beginning at 2 a.m. and going until approximately 10 a.m. Only one lane will be closed at a time as the work continues.

Officials say they hope the early start on the project reduces impact on traffic and increases safety for the workers.
