TROUP COUNTY, GA - Troup County officially opened the South Loop (Pegasus Parkway, aka "The Chips Moman Highway") with a huge ceremony.
There was music written and played by Chips Moman himself and speakers who saw the project all the way through. The Chamber of Commerce was also on hand to cut the ribbon.
Pegasus Parkway, which now connects Whitesville Road to West Point and Roanoke Roads, is now officially open for your afternoon/morning commute. This section of the loop serves an alternative route to the Western portion of LaGrange.
On the north side of LaGrange, work is still underway to finish up the North Loop. This will connect Mooty Bridge Road to Whitesville Road. Using the North Loop, motorists will be able to travel from Mooty Bridge, Waugh, Young’s Mill, Hammett and Davis roads to Whitesville Road.
Sheriff Donny Turner encourages motorists to use caution while all motorists familiarize themselves with the new roadways. Leave in plenty of time to arrive at your destination, without the need for excessive speeding. Observe the speed limit signs, traffic signals and all other safety devices as you travel to and from home, work and Christmas Partiesl… And, as always – Buckle Up!
