CHATSWORTH, Ga. – The Georgia Department of Transportation (DOT) is advising motorists in Murray County of a detour off State Route (SR) 2 in at the CSX Railroad crossing in Cisco, scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, Nov.12, and 13, 2018, to accommodate work by the railroad company on upgrading the crossing. The highway at this location will be closed and traffic redirected onto Tennga Gregory Road and US 411. This railroad maintenance operation and the road closure it necessitates are weather permitting and subject to change.
“We understand that the closure of Highway 2 at this location may cause some inconvenience and delays, but it is necessary for repairing the crossing as quickly as possible, and giving the roadway back to the traveling public,” explained Grant Waldrop, district engineer at the Georgia DOT office in Cartersville.
