Georgia DOT’s maintenance crews will continue their work on repairing the deteriorating asphalt spots on Ga. Hwy. 20 and Ga. 5 Business in Cherokee County, Ga. Hwy. 120 in Paulding and US 27/SR1 in Polk County today through Friday, Aug. 23.

Work will proceed daily between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., weather permitting.

According to a release, it is Georgia DOT policy to repair and maintain Georgia interstates and state highways promptly, efficiently and economically using deep patching. Prompt repair of small asphalt pavement defects has significant impacts on reducing maintenance costs. Deep patching which will be used in this maintenance operation is one of the methods Georgia DOT uses to repair deteriorated, settled, cracking and dislodged pavement. The technique is much less expensive than other methods. As used by GDOT, deep patching provides a reasonable measure of roadway repairs and reduces maintenance costs.
