Overnight Work Planned on Nickajack Road

Lookout Mountain, GA – A state contractor will be working overnight this week making safety improvements to Nickajack Road.  Crews will be installing a high friction surface treatment on the road from 7:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.

The surface treatment work will take six to eight days to complete.  Later this month, the contractor will return to install reflective thermoplastic striping and signage.

Motorists traveling this area should plan for delays.  While traffic will be impacted during this construction work, one lane will remain open for travel.

Walker County patched, leveled and resurfaced Nickajack Road last October in preparation for these safety improvements.
