Columbia Industrial Boulevard to close for construction

Columbia Industrial Boulevard will close for 30 days as contractors construct a tie-in to the River Watch Parkway extension.

The Georgia Department of Transportation said motorists should expect to see signs for a 2.4-mile detour using Blue Ridge Drive and Evans to Locks Road starting Thursday, coinciding with the activation of a traffic signal at the intersection of Washington Road and Towne Centre Drive.

For the first time, motorists on Thursday will be able to use a newly constructed portion of River Watch Parkway from Washington Road to Connor Drive.

The opening of the road marks another milestone in the $35 million widening and improvement of Old Petersburg Road to better connect Evans with downtown Augusta.
