Overnight traffic shift on I-75 Wednesday

Shield symbol for I-75

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) announced in a press release that contractors will implement a traffic shift Wednesday for the rehabilitation of the I-75 southbound bridge over Barrett Parkway.

The GDOT describes the Wednesday traffic shift as follows:

Weather permitting, on Wednesday, December 4, crews will shift three through lanes on I-75 southbound to the right for temporary striping. The temporary striping will remain until the completion of the project in March 2020. Message boards and signage will alert drivers of the traffic shift.
This project will provide rehabilitation of the I-75 northbound and southbound bridges over Barrett Parkway, including bridge joint replacement, deck overhang repairs, replacement of anchor bolts, and painting of the superstructures.

Message boards will give drivers advance notice of the upcoming lane closures. Motorists are advised to expect delays and use signed detours, exercise caution, and reduce their speed while traveling through work zones. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. Call 511, visit 511ga.org, or download the Georgia 511 app. 

This is an ongoing project.
