AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- The drivers who were ticketed on River Watch Parkway after a speed limit sign error could likely see their tickets disappear.

Solicitor General Kellie Kenner McIntyre sent an email saying they "anticipate that those that were issued because of the error will be dismissed."

McIntyre says this does not include all citations issued on River Watch Parkway, just the ones in the affected area.

Some drivers received tickets after an incorrect speed limit sign was posted along River Watch Parkway. The city says Massana Construction could be to blame. The company is building a trail extension and two bridges off River Watch Parkway. The westbound lane of traffic was reduced to 45 mph near the construction site. The problem is the 55 mile per hour sign was just uncovered a few weeks back. The city's engineering department says they caught the problem and corrected it in early June.

If you think you may be affected, call the Solicitor General's Office at (706) 821-1220.
