    Laurens County passing lanes coming to GA 257


    DUBLIN - To prevent rear-end collisions, Reeves Construction Company will build six "run-around" passing lanes on State Route 257 in Laurens County. 

    At each intersection, an asphalt shoulder extension will allow SR 257 drivers to move safely around vehicles stopped ahead attempting left turns.


    Contract crews will mobilize this coming week to begin weather permitting. Crews should work in the area for a few weeks.

    The following locations are included in the $816,000 total Georgia DOT contract investment between Dexter and Dublin spanning almost 2.5 miles.
    • Dublin-Eastman Road
    • Hillbridge Road
    • Lauren Woods Road
    • Quail Run Extension
    • Carthen Lane
    • Bailey Lane
