Doug Barnard Parkway Improvement Project!
The Augusta Richmond County Traffic Engineering Department announced the initiation of the Doug Barnard Parkway Entrance Improvement Project. This project will commence on Monday, September 28th and is scheduled for completion on or around December 27th. Project hours are typically 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
This safety-enhancement project will widen a 700-foot section of Doug Barnard Parkway (south of the Tobacco Road intersection) adding a southbound left turn lane and a nothbound deceleration lane into the Airport's South entrance.
Flaggers will be on site to ensure construction zone safety. There will be occasions when flaggers will alternately funnel north and southbound traffic. This may delay Airport patrons attempting to turn left into the main entrance.
Augusta Regional Airport recommends all Airport patrons who may travel through this area to please schedule travel time accordingly. Also, consider utilizing the Airport's North entrance.
*NOTE: This project is scheduled for 90 days. Weather may affect the timeline. All questions regarding the construction project should be directed to the Augusta Richmond County Traffic Engineering Department, 706-821-1706. See attached image for aerial photo of construction area.
