Resurfacing work on State Route 174 in Franklin County is set to begin on Monday, April 22nd if weather allows.

The work will take place along the stretch from US29/SR 8 to State Route 51.

A flagger and pilot vehicle will direct traffic through the work zone daily, and motorists should expect delays when traveling through the area.

Work will occur on weekdays from 8:30am until 4:00pm. No work is scheduled for the weekends.

The nearly 4.6 mile stretch of work was contracted to C.W. Matthews Construction out of Marietta, Georgia for a total cost of nearly $700,000.
