Florida DOT: I-75 Will Remain Open

Today, the Florida Department of Transportation announced that I-75 will remain open, as flood waters have been receding on the Santa Fe River.

As of this morning, FDOT engineers and state meteorologists do not believe that the Santa Fe River will reach a level to make the interstate unsafe.

On Wednesday, FDOT and the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles announced that due to unprecedented flooding of the Santa Fe River, there was a potential for I-75 to close for motorist safety.

Because of high water levels of the Santa Fe River, US 41 and US 27 remain closed. Once these highways are safe, they will be reopened to motorists.

Additional bridges that may be impacted include: U.S. 27, U.S. 41, S.R. 47 and possibly U.S. 121. Additional maps and detour information will be forthcoming.

FDOT and FLHSMV have staff monitoring the bridges that may be impacted by the flooding 24/7. If the river rises to an unsafe level, the bridge will be impassable both northbound and southbound, and would be closed immediately. Floridians that are traveling should avoid the area if possible.

If required to be in the area, the Florida Department of Transportation is actively working with WAZE, Google Maps, the Georgia Department of Transportation and other transportation
industry partners to communicate the potential reroutes to the public.

Georgia DOT Advises Use of All Available Routes for Irma Evacuation

As residents and guests consider leaving areas expected to be impacted by Hurricane Irma, Georgia DOT encourages evacuees to plan their evacuation routes, and reminds citizens that there are numerous routes throughout the state that provide alternatives to the already-congested interstates. With mandatory evacuation of areas of coastal Georgia beginning today, Georgia DOT urges motorists to consider all possible evacuation routes in addition to interstate highways.

On Thursday, Gov. Nathan Deal issued a state of emergency for 30 counties in Georgia in anticipation of the storm. The Governor has also issued a mandatory evacuation order for all areas east of I-95, all of Chatham County and some areas west of I-95 that could be impacted by potential storm surge from Hurricane Irma.

To facilitate travel from mandatory evacuation zones and areas of expected impact from the storm, beginning Saturday morning at 8 a.m. Georgia DOT will work with Georgia State Patrol to contraflow a 125-mile stretch of I-16 from Savannah to US 441 in Dublin, which will double the westbound capacity on this section of interstate to better accommodate the anticipated volume of traffic.

“Designated evacuation routes and contraflow measures add capacity for moving large amounts of people to safety in a short period of time,” said Georgia DOT Commissioner Russell R. McMurry. “This is about safety, not speed. We ask that everyone plan ahead, pre-select your evacuation route using 511, carry needed supplies and exercise patience and discretion. We’re all in this together.”

Beginning today, 15 Coordinated Highway Assistance and Maintenance Program (CHAMP) operators will be deployed to I-95 and I-75 between Florida and Macon to provide motorists assistance and traffic control for the increased volume of evacuation traffic from Florida and the Georgia coast. On Saturday, 20 Highway Emergency Response Operators (HEROs) will begin assisting with contraflow and traffic management on I-16.

The I-75 South Metro Express Lanes are now open to northbound traffic only to provide additional lanes for evacuation, and the State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA) has suspended tolling on this facility until further notice. On I-75, this applies only to the South Metro Express Lanes in Henry and Clayton counties. Normally, vehicles are required to have a Georgia Peach Pass or a Florida SunPass to access the Express Lanes, but with this waiver, all vehicles, regardless of whether they have a pass, can access the lanes at no cost. Tractor-trailers are prohibited from using the lanes, which are not open to vehicles with more than two axles or six wheels.

While citizens are urged to consider all possible evacuation routes, motorists are reminded that Georgia DOT will contraflow I-16 from Savannah to Dublin beginning Saturday. A median crossover on I-16 east of I-95 will cross traffic over onto I-16 eastbound lanes to travel westbound. All eastbound access at interchanges will be blocked from Dublin to Savannah on I-16 during the contraflow process. Travelers may exit contraflow lanes at the following locations:

  • Exit 143 @ SR 30 / US 280 (Exit to Pembroke at Ellabell, Georgia)
  • Exit 116 @ SR 73 / SR 301 (Exit to Statesboro and Claxton at Metter, Georgia)
  • Exit 104 @ SR 23 / SR 121 (Exit to Metter and Reidsville at Metter, Georgia)
  • Exit 90 @ SR 4 / US 1 (Swainsboro, Georgia)
  • Exit 71 @ SR 15 / SR 78 (Exit to Soperton and Adrian at Soperton, Georgia)
  • Exit 67 @ SR 29 (Soperton, Georgia)
  • Exit 51 @ SR 31 / US 319 / US 441 (Dublin, Georgia)

A crossover on I-16 at SR 26 (MP 38) in Laurens County will direct traffic back to regular westbound lanes prior to arrival in Macon. All westbound exits will remain open after Dublin.

Motorists are also reminded that shoulders on interstates are reserved for – and are being actively used by – emergency vehicles only. They are not to be used for passenger vehicles.

I-75 Construction Work Zone in Detroit Expanding

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has begun a $56.5 million project to remove and replace concrete pavement and sewers in southwest Detroit between Clark Avenue and Springwells Street. This project also will include the installation of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and fiber optic upgrade between the I-75/I-96 interchange and West Road in Woodhaven. ITS will be used to gather and share road information: cameras, dynamic message signs (DMS), travel times, etc.

This project is in addition to the current I-75 Rouge River Detroit-Downriver Connection project and will be an extension of the current southbound work zone. By performing this work during the “I-75 Rouge” project between Springwells Street and Northline Road, it will modify current lane closures and traffic safety devices to save time, money, and future inconvenience to drivers and residents.

One southbound lane will remain open from Clark Avenue to Springwells Street where traffic must exit for the freeway closure. This work will continue through the winter and is expected to be completed next fall. This project will follow “I-75 Rouge” with southbound traffic detoured and northbound traffic remaining open and shifted onto new pavement through the next year.

 

TRAFFIC IMPACT:

To safely merge traffic into one lane, barrels will be placed north of the I-75/I-96 interchange and drivers will have one ramp lane to southbound I-75 and one ramp lane to westbound I-96 which has four lanes open. Drivers are strongly encouraged to use the westbound I-96 detour to avoid the I-75 work zones and closure.

Ambassador bridge traffic will continue the current configuration of cars exiting to westbound I-96 and trucks exiting onto one lane of southbound I-75 into the work zone.

Lane Closures, Traffic Shifts for I-75 Construction in Tampa Bay Area

The Florida Department of Transportation reports the following traffic impacts associated with I-75 construction in the Tampa Bay area this week.

  • Wesley Chapel/San Antonio – One lane may be closed in each direction of I-75 anywhere from north of County Road 54 (Exit 279) to north of SR 52 (Exit 285) between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Friday night, August 4 and Sunday through Friday (August 6 – 11) nights.
  • San Antonio – There may be lane closures on State Road 52 between Old Pasco Road and McKendree Road between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Friday night, August 4 and Sunday through Friday (August 6 – 11) nights. Watch for flaggers directing traffic.
  • Brooksville – One lane may be closed in each direction of I-75 from south of SR 50 (Exit 301) to the Hernando/Sumter counties line between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday (August 6 – 10) nights.
  • Brooksville – One lane of SR 50 (Cortez Boulevard) may be closed from I-75 up to a half mile in each direction between 6:30 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday (August 6 – 10) nights and from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (August 7 – 11).
    During some of the night closures, drivers can expect traffic shifts and delays between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. on SR 50 in the I-75 interchange area as traffic may be reduced to one lane in each direction and both directions of traffic placed on the westbound lanes. This will result in two-way traffic on what normally is a two-lane westbound section of roadway.
    In addition, all traffic entering and exiting I-75 may be limited to right turns only. This will mean drivers who normally would be making a left turn movement onto or off the ramps may have to go the opposite direction and make a U-Turn on SR 50 to go in their desired direction. Traffic congestion and delays are expected during the traffic shifts on SR 50 and on the I-75 exit ramps whenever traffic is in this temporary overnight alignment.
  • Brooksville – One lane may be closed with flaggers directing traffic on Croom Rital Road under I-75 from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (August 7 – 11).
