With Autumn approaching, construction crews working on Georgia’s I-16/I-75 Interchange Improvements Project are having to alter their schedules to work around the anticipated periods of rain. Nonetheless, the work is still progressing steadily. Details of the project to are below, including information about the removal of the old pedestrian bridge over I-75 near the Georgia 19/Georgia Avenue interchange (exit 164) next weekend and how it will affect traffic.
Looking ahead to next weekend, I-75 traffic in both directions at the Georgia 19/Georgia Avenue interchange (exit 164 – also concurrent with Hardeman Avenue and Forsyth Street) will be diverted to the exit’s on-ramps and off-ramps to accommodate workers removing the old pedestrian bridge over the interstate. Weather permitting, the diversion will be enacted from 11:00 p.m. Sunday night, Oct. 27 to 4:00 a.m. Monday morning, Oct. 28, 2019. Signage and orange-and-white barrels will be used to move traffic from the interstate to the ramps, and law enforcement officers will be stationed on site to provide assistance if needed.
Ongoing Long-term Closures:
- The dedicated right turn lane on the I-16 eastbound off-ramp to Spring Street, which will remain closed through the spring of 2021.
- The permanent lane closure (for at least a year) on Coliseum Drive/Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard southbound between Clinton Street to Riverside Drive; southbound traffic in that area is currently reduced to one lane.
