A heads up for drivers on one of Augusta's busiest roads.
The westbound right lane of Washington Road near Alexander Drive will close Monday for approximately three weeks. Westbound traffic will be down to one lane in the area of the new Kroger store.
Crews will build a deceleration lane and some driveways.
Augusta Engineering Department says the lane will be closed through March 31.
There is no detour, and traffic will be maintained.
If you want to avoid the area, you can use River Watch Parkway.
