Effingham County is beginning the final phase of construction of the new curve to tie Blue Jay Road and McCall Road together near the intersection with Norfolk Southern Railroad. APAC-Atlantic, Inc. (APAC) is currently scheduled to begin final surface paving beginning Monday the 6th of December 2021 and is expected to have traffic in the newly constructed alignment by the close of business on Friday the 10th of December. During this time, drivers should expect to see paving of the shoulders, final surface, and pavement striping. Traffic patterns will change intermittently during construction, with the final traffic configuration using the newly constructed curve and approach road.
Drivers traveling east on Blue Jay Road will be required to make a right turn at the new intersection to continue towards Rincon. Likewise, drivers on Blandford Road traveling west will make a left turn onto Blue Jay Road at the intersection within the new curve. McCall Road travelers going south will make a left turn onto Blandford Road to continue on McCall Road. McCall and Blandford Road traffic wishing to travel north will make a right turn onto the new curve.
Once complete, portions of the existing roads will be converted to local traffic access only.
