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.

Northbound I-75 in Michigan Closing Friday, July 20 for Bridge Removal

The Michigan Department of Transportation reports that, beginning Friday, July 20 at 8:00 pm, northbound I-75 between Schaefer Highway and Rosa Parks Boulevard will close for the weekend demolition of three pedestrian bridge structures over I-75. Northbound I-75 will reopen Saturday, July 21 at 4:00 pm.

The pedestrian bridges are between Springwells Street and Waterman Street. The extended closure length is due to on-going construction already in place.

The closed on-ramps include those at Schaefer Highway, Springwells Street, Waterman Street, Dragoon Street (Livernois Avenue), Clark Avenue, West Grand Boulevard, and Vernor Highway. The ramp to the Ambassador Bridge can be accessed West Grand Boulevard and Fort Street. Southbound I-75 is already closed and detoured in this area.

DETOUR:

Northbound I-75 to westbound Schaefer Highway to eastbound I-94 to eastbound I-96 to northbound I-75. Local traffic can use northbound M-85 (Fort Street) and enter northbound I-75 at Rosa Parks Boulevard.

BACKGROUND:

The inlay work taking place on this area of I-75 is part of the overall “75Rouge: Detroit-Downriver Connection” project, a $220 million bridge project that involves removing and replacing concrete (equivalent to approximately 24 football fields of concrete) on the Rouge River Bridge, the largest bridge in Michigan in both length and width. Work also includes removing and rebuilding the Goddard Road bridges and repairs on 11 other Downriver bridges.

Drivers are advised that there are local county projects affecting the intersection of Dix-Toledo, Allen, and Pennsylvania roads near the Dix-Toledo Road ramp leading to southbound I-75. Heavy traffic and long delays should be expected, and drivers are strongly advised to use M-85 (Fort Street) as a detour route.
