VALDOSTA – A detour for Interstate 75 South traffic at Exit 13/Old Clyattville Road is scheduled on two separate nights, May 2, 3, and 4 (only if needed) for removal of a portion of the overpass.

Southern Concrete Construction Co., a contractor for the Georgia Department of Transportation, is planning to remove a section of the bridge above lanes of traffic. The I-75 southbound entrance ramp will not be accessible during the detour.

The overpass was damaged in 2013 when a tractor-trailer crashed and caught fire under the west end of bridge. Repairs will include replacing portions of the deck and some of the beams and rehabilitating other parts of the bridge. The work will also affect Old Clyattville Road traffic.

The detour will begin at 9 p.m. each night and end by 5 a.m. the following morning. Traffic will not be detoured during regular daylight hours.

 Southbound traffic will get off the interstate at Exit 13 and take Old Clyattville Road to Gil Harbin Industrial Boulevard, turn onto Madison Highway and return to the interstate at Exit 11.
