The Georgia Department of Transportation announces work has begun on a safety enhancement project along a portion of I-75 in Catoosa County beginning at Exit 350 and extending to the Tennessee State line.
The project is intended to improve safety and visibility along
this portion of the interstate by:
- removing overgrown vegetation that encroaches on the shoulders and slopes;
- reducing trees and bushes within rights of way to safeguard motorists and provide adequate room for vehicle
recovery if someone leaves the roadway;
- ensuring the visibility of warning, information and instructional signs; and
- removing overhanging trees and/or branches that may fall onto the interstate during inclement weather, or cast shadows onto the roadway and prevent the sun from quickly drying the moisture off the roadway in case of winter weather.
The Department also awarded a landscaping contract for beautification along the north end of I-75 from Exit 353 in
Catoosa County to the Tennessee State line. The project is designed to create a more aesthetically pleasing area for visitors entering the Peach State.
“These two projects and others like them in northwest Georgia add up to these two things – safer mobility and a better quality of life for all our residents,” said State Transportation Board Member Roger Williams.
