    Downtown Dublin detour loop required this weekend

    Weather permitting, Saturday and Sunday northbound State Route 19/Jefferson Street traffic must detour around downtown, allowing Everett Dykes Grassing time to complete a repave from MLK Jr. Boulevard to the courthouse.

    Work will begin around 8 a.m. June 27 and June 28. The short detour must be removed both evenings.

    Southbound SR 19 travelers will have minimal impacts but should still remain alert and expect some delays around the city.

    This is a key part of the ongoing $4.844 million resurfacing of SR 19 from the Wheeler County line through to downtown Dublin. Once complete with this task, crews must build shoulders, pave driveway and side road tie-ins and complete final striping.

    Major work at current progression should be knocked out by the end of the summer.
