At the request of CSX Railroad, the Georgia Department of Transportation and Glynn County have announced a road closure in conjunction with construction on the railroad crossing on U.S. 341/S.R. 27 at mile post 13.45 between Pyles Marsh Rd. and Cowpen Creek Rd. in Glynn County.
U.S. 341/S.R. 27 will be closed at the railroad crossing from 12 p.m. Feb. 16 to 5 p.m. Feb. 18, weather permitting.
The road closure will be used to calibrate the railway, which will create a smooth transition for motorists and reduce continuous maintenance.
"Georgia DOT endeavors to work with the community to minimize traffic delays caused by construction and maintenance of the roadways. In an effort to minimize the impact to the traveling public, the work will be accomplished over the weekend," stated Georgia DOT District Engineer Karon Ivery in a press release.
