Law Enforcement Reconstructing Fatal Accident that Occurred on Airways Avenue
SAVANNAH, GA – According to an online news report at wsav.com, local authorities are reconstructing a deadly accident that occurred earlier this week which impacted traffic close to the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport.*
According to the Savannah Police Department (SPD), back in August, a 20-year-old man tragically perished following an accident with another automobile on Airways Avenue. Law enforcement temporarily closed two easterly lanes of Airways Avenue between Gulfstream Road and Crossroads Parkway. SPD’s Traffic Investigation Unit, Airport Police, and the Georgia State Patrol will be on the scene to help route traffic away from the accident scene.
The Airport Police will engage in a contraflow plan so as to reduce disruptions to airport traffic. The timing is as follows:
- 5 p.m. – police will set up traffic cones for the contraflow plan
- 5:30 p.m. – the contraflow plan will begin
- 6 p.m. – the Georgia State Patrol will map the area and conduct an investigation of the accident.
At this time, the two westerly lanes on Airways Avenue between Gulfstream Road and Crossroads Parkway will be converted to one east lane and one west lane.
