Release:

LAKE PARK – There will be lane closures this week and next on Interstate 75 at Exit 2/Lake Park-Bellville Road in Lowndes County so beams can be installed for the new bridge under construction.

A total of 10 beams will be installed, five each over the northbound and southbound lanes. Installation will begin on the southbound side of I-75. The contractor will close the inside/left lane Wednesday, Oct. 21, to give the trucks hauling the beams (one beam per truck) a place to stage. Beams are scheduled to be set Thursday, Oct. 22, beginning at 10 p.m. and should be complete by 6 a.m. Southbound interstate traffic will detour using the off and on ramps. The southbound inside lane will reopen once installation is complete.

The process is scheduled to be repeated Monday, Oct. 26, on I-75 North. Trucks hauling the beams will park in the inside/left northbound lane that morning, closing that lane. Beam installation will begin at 10 p.m. and should be complete by 6 a.m. Traffic will detour using the off and on ramps and the inside lane will reopen once beams are set.

Updates will be posted at  www.facebook.com/GDOTSW and twitter.com/GDOTSW  if inclement weather causes beam installation to be rescheduled.

The approximately $28 million Georgia Department of Transportation project to reconstruct and update the old Exit 2 interchange is currently scheduled to be complete in the fall of 2022. The contractor for the project is Reames and Son Construction Co. Inc. and the bridge sub contractor is Southern Concrete Construction Co. Inc.
