Tift County--The Georgia Department of Transportation continues to make progress toward its goal, of having six-lanes on Interstate-75 all the way through Georgia.

Another section is about to open.

It took three years and 30 million dollars to widen a 5.5-mile section in Turner County.

If all goes well with the weather, those new lanes will open on Wednesday May 7th.

"We're excited about the fact we're opening up another leg of I-75 which will give an extra lane in each direction for travelers. Right here the vacation season is upon us we'll have six lanes from South of Tifton to State Route 32, We're very proud of that." Said Joe Cowen, the DOT District Construction Engineer

The area will be considered a work zone until all work zone signs are removed.

Work continues on I-75 in other areas in several south Georgia counties.
