VALDOSTA – The right (outside) lane of Interstate 75 North is scheduled to close two days this week near the weigh station for work on a statewide Georgia Department of Transportation project called Weigh In Motion. The work is dependent upon favorable weather.

Weather permitting, the right (outside) lane of I-75 North from milepost 22 to 23 will close from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Weigh in Motion project involves installing weigh scales in outside interstate lanes approximately 3,000 feet upstream of each of the existing 19 weigh stations to prescreen commercial vehicles.

The scales are designed to capture and record axle weights and gross vehicle weights as vehicles drive over a measurement site. Unlike static scales, WIM systems are capable of measuring vehicles traveling at reduced or normal speeds and do not require the vehicle to come to a stop. This makes the weighing process more efficient, and, in the case of commercial vehicles, allows for trucks below the weight limit to bypass static scales or inspection sites.
