GDOT: Cochran bypass expected to reopen June 21

Georgia Department of Transportation

COCHRAN, Ga. -- The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has announced that on Thursday, June 21, drivers will be able to start using the Cochran bypass again.

A GDOT release says contractors will shift traffic on to the newly rebuilt US 23/State Route (SR) 87 section starting north of Foskey Rd. and extending to Dykes Circle.

Traffic will need to detour onto the bypass, while SR 87 is tied into the newly widened highway. The second detour will only be in place for about 30 days.

The project connects to an existing five-lane section south of Cochran and to a four-lane section north of Cochran.
