Fayette County, Georgia – September 30, 2022 – As of today Ebenezer Church Road is now OPEN to all traffic between Lester Road and Redwine Road.
Minor construction activities are expected to continue. Signs and crews will be onsite during any construction activities to guide motorists through the construction zone.
Fayette County, the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), and the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) are working together to replace the bridge on Ebenezer Church Road over Whitewater Creek. The new bridge will be approximately 300-ft long, have two 12-ft lanes with 8-ft shoulders on each side, and will accommodate modern vehicle weights. The project is being designed and managed by GDOT. Fayette County was responsible for land acquisition. The project is made possible through a combination of local 2017 SPLOST, state, and federal funding sources, with Fayette County’s local share being less than 15% of the project’s $5.3M total.
Project information, including road closure and detour updates, is available at the Fayette County 2017 SPLOST webpage: https://www.fayettecountyga.gov/splost-2017/. Alternatively, please contact Fayette County at 770-320-6011 or SPLOST@fayettecountyga.gov for additional information.

Fayette County, Georgia – September 7, 2022 - Ebenezer Church Road between Lester Road and Redwine Road is currently on schedule to open to traffic this month, weather permitting.
Construction activities will continue after opening, resulting in intermittent lane closures and delays. Signs and construction personnel will be onsite to guide motorists through the work zone. Motorists should expect delays and use alternate routes when possible. Please use caution when driving through the area.
Project information, including road closure and detour updates, is available on the Fayette County 2017 SPLOST webpage: https://www.fayettecountyga.gov/splost-2017/. Alternatively, please contact Fayette County at 770-320-6011 or SPLOST@fayettecountyga.gov for additional information.
Fayette County, Georgia – September 1, 2022. To reduce the risk of crashes, the intersection of Veterans Parkway and Eastin Road will be converted to an all-way stop-controlled intersection on Wednesday September 7, 2022.
This intersection will be changing from the current two-way stop-controlled intersection on Eastin Road to an all-way stop-controlled intersection. This conversion is based on a warrant analysis conducted by Fayette County. The existing left turn lanes on Veterans Parkway will be striped-out and closed as part of the change to an all-way stop.
The four-way stop is an interim measure to improve safety until a roundabout, traffic signal, or other permanent intersection control is designed and constructed for safety and operational improvements.
Public Works crews will install “STOP AHEAD” signs to warn motorists of the new traffic pattern, in addition to other signs and markings. County staff will also be on site to control traffic through the intersection while sign installation work is underway.
Drivers are reminded that they are required to come to a full and complete stop at intersections with stop signs.
Please contact Fayette County at 770-320-6011 or email@example.com for additional information.
