UPDATE: The detour originally scheduled for June 2 has been POSTPONED until June 9 due to a beam manufacturing delay.

VALDOSTA – Motorists are reminded that Interstate 75 South traffic is scheduled to detour this week so the contractor can set (install) bridge beams over the lanes of traffic at Exit 13/Old Clyattville Road.

During the detour the I-75 southbound on-ramp (entrance ramp) will not be accessible starting at 9 p.m.

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.

The overpass was damaged in 2013 when a tractor-trailer crashed and caught fire under the west end of the 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. Contractor Southern Concrete Construction Co. is scheduled to complete repairs Sept. 30.
