Highway 127 will close this week at two intersections, in Kathleen and Houston County, for railroad crossing repairs.
The Georgia Department of Transportation says Hwy. 127 will be closed at the intersection of Hwy. 247 near Kathleen, and at the South Houston Lake Road intersection in Houston County.
G-DOT says those road closings were requested by Norfolk Southern Railroad, so workers can perform track maintenance at railroad crossings.
Traffic will be detoured continuously at both intersections starting at 9 A.M. on Tuesday, March 24th, through 7 P.M. on Wednesday, March 25th.
G-DOD says a signed detour will be in place using Hwy. 247 from the City of Kathleen to Hwy. 247 Spur; to Hwy. 11 (approximately 1.25 miles north of Clinchfield), to Hwy. 127. Advance warning signs and barricades have been placed at intersections prior to the closure.
