Get on Highway 96 from I-75 in Houston County, and it will take you through Warner Robins, Bonaire and into Twiggs County to I-16.
The highway is heavily congested at certain times of the day with Robins Air Force Base workers.
Semi trucks use the route to travel to I-16, headed for the coast.
For those reasons, it's being redesigned.
The road's new path has been a source of controversy for people who live in the area for at least half a decade.
The project's now going forward.
The road may be good for many, but it's full of heartache for a few. That includes Bonaire resident, Buddy Bass.
He said, "They do need to make some changes to Highway 96. I've never argued that point."
70-year-old Bass knows Bonaire isn't what it used to be.
Bass said, "There was five houses on Old Hawkinsville Road, when we moved here."
That was in the 1950's.
