The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) will close Wills Road near its intersection with State Route 9 beginning Monday, August 7.  The closure, which is related to the construction of the State Route 9 Improvement Project, will be in place through February 2024.

The closure will impact motorists who typically use Wills Road to travel between State Route 9 and Old Milton Parkway.  Detour signs will be in place to guide these motorists to other travel routes.
