Interstate road cleanup set in Tift Co.


The state DOT says that crews will clear debris from I-75 in Tift County next week, so drivers should  expect delays, and possible lane closures. 

They will begin at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 6 and continue to 7 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 7; and                    beginning at approximately 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 7 and continuing to approximately 7 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8.

Interstate 75 north and south between mile markers 53 and 55 in Tift County (before and through the area of the new I-75 and Omega/El Dorado Road interchange).  

Crews for a Georgia Department of Transportation contractor will be sweeping debris from the median and outside shoulders of I-75. Lane closures are possible in the inside and outside north and southbound lanes.

Traffic pacing may be used to move equipment to and from the median. That means prior to entering the area where crews will be working, law enforcement officers position their vehicles in front of traffic in all lanes in the given direction and escort traffic through the work zone at a slower, controlled speed.

This may occur several times during the time frames listed above. Delays may occur, so motorists are requested to be patient, obey pacing commands, drive slowly and exercise extreme caution in this work zone.
