Augusta, GA (WJBF) – A long-awaited construction project is now complete.

Wrightsboro Road sees around 33,000 daily commuters and Wednesday, city leaders said the project is finally completed.

Lane closures and backed up traffic was the norm for the last 3 years, but the three-mile long project is finally coming to an end and city leaders celebrated Wednesday with a ribbon cutting.

Engineers says they are 99.9 percent there…

“There is some final clean-up to do, there are some final adjustments to make with the signals, just some corrective work and things of that nature,” said Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) area engineer Rodney Way.

Traffic engineers say one of the last things the city will do is take over tweaking the traffic signals and making sure they sync up.
