Interstate travelers be aware of construction

Updated:

with information from the Ga. Dept. of Transportation

If you're passing through Cook, Tift, or crisp County this weekend, you should know that major construction projects are underway on Interstate 75 in South Georgia.

Work is being done between Exit 37/Adel-Old Quitman Road and the Crisp/Dooly County line. 

This work will warrant lane closures and traffic shifts along this section of I-75, which could cause short delays through March 11.

In COOK/TIFT: The I-75/Exit 41 northbound on ramp has been temporarily closed to traffic.  This ramp closure is being utilized to allow the replacement of the railroad overpass bridge on I-75 north. I-75 northbound traffic has recently been shifted between mile marker 39 and mile marker 55 to allow for new construction. This project requires much of the project shoulders to be temporarily closed with barrier walls.

You may encounter night time lane closures on I-75 north and south between mile marker 53 and mile marker 59.

In CRISP County: The I-75 northbound Exit 102 off ramp has been relocated.  Construction activities could include lane closures from Exit 99/SR 300 to the Dooly County line. This project requires much of the project shoulders to be temporarily closed with barrier walls. Emergency pull offs will be provided at various locations throughout the project between the Crisp/Dooly County line and mile marker 98.
