Re-paving project to close roads in Chickamauga NMP

Posted: Updated:
CHICKAMAUGA, GA (WRCB) -

A road re-paving project at the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park over the next few months will close sections of LaFayette Road.

Other, related parts of the road will be temporarily closed for bridge restoration projects, and the replacement of the Reed's Bridge Road/McFarland Gap Road intersection traffic light.

The resurfacing project will not affect the visitor center's operating hours, but visitors are asked to use the marked detours as they are deployed during the project.

The work will be done in three phases, and run from November 2014 and June 2015:

  • 1st phase will include the traffic light replacement at the Reeds Bridge Road/McFarland Gap Road intersection, asphalt resurfacing extending to, but not including, the Glenn-Kelly Road/Alexander Bridge Road intersection. Temporary employee and visitor parking to the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center will be provided in McDonald Field, adjacent to the visitor center.  Handicap parking will be provided near the visitor center throughout the project.  
  • 2nd phase will include the Glenn-Kelly Road/Alexander Bridge Road intersection and extend to Brotherton Road, near Tour Stop 4.  
  • 3rd phase will extend from Brotherton Road, near Tour Stop 4, to the park's southern boundary. 

All roads within the park boundaries will be affected by this closure.
