Major I-75 Project in Georgia Set to Begin Today

Cracks, raveling and other road deficiencies that create a rough ride on Interstate 75 in Turner and Crisp counties will be eliminated with a resurfacing project scheduled to begin Sunday night.

The project begins south of Exit 84/SR 159 in Turner County and ends north of Old Hatley Road in Crisp County, a distance of 14.47 miles. It includes ramps. Contractor Reeves Construction Co. plans to start on the northbound right (outside) shoulder around milepost 84 in Turner County, which will require closing the right lane.

No daytime lane closures will be permitted during the project. Single lane closures will be from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. and double lane closures from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. At this time the contractor plans to work Sunday through Thursday, though that schedule is subject to change. Weather will also impact the schedule.

Resurfacing is not expected to begin on the southbound lanes until the northbound lanes are complete. The $19.2 million Georgia Department of Transportation project is expected to be finished April 30, 2019. This portion of I-75 hasn’t been resurfaced since a widening/reconstruction project was completed in 2003.

I-75 Resurfacing Project Begins, Expect Delays

Work crews for the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) are set to begin resurfacing of approximately 11 miles on I-75 from the Chattahoochee River in Fulton County to just north of Allgood Road in Cobb County; from I-285 eastbound over I-75 to just west of the Chattahoochee River Bridge; and all ramps and collector-distributor (CD lanes that are currently not included in the Northwest Corridor Express Lanes project. This project is designed to address the deteriorating condition of the roadway’s surface.

Starting Monday, April 23, crews will work on the I-75 northbound to Cumberland Boulevard exit ramp. Motorists traveling on I-75 northbound to that exit will be routed to take Windy Hill Road to I-75 southbound to Cumberland Boulevard. Changeable message boards will be in place to route traffic.

“We strongly advise motorists to be prepared, plan ahead and know before you go,” said Georgia DOT Metro District Engineer Kathy Zahul. “This highly anticipated resurfacing project will create a smoother and safer ride for all commuters. We ask motorists to please pardon our progress and pack your patience while on the road.”

Throughout the project and due to the nature of the work, some interstate on-and off-ramps may be closed temporarily and detours implemented. In addition, the resurfacing on I-75 will require intermittent single, double and triple lane closures to allow the work to progress efficiently while ensuring driver and worker safety. To minimize delays, most lane closures will be restricted to nighttime and weekend hours.

These are high traffic volume routes. As always, motorists traveling in the area are reminded to reduce their speeds in the work zone. Motorists are also encouraged to wear seatbelts, eliminate distractions behind the wheel, and plan their routes before getting on the road by calling 511 for real-time information on work status and traffic conditions.

“Work zones serve as the workplace for GDOT workers and contractors. It is vitally important that they are safe and able to return home to their families as they carry out their duties,” Zahul added.
