TIFTON – Spring projects totaling approximately $17.5 million will help maintain Interstate 75, Southwest Georgia’s major route.
The first project to resurface almost 11 miles in Turner County, from south of Hat Creek to south of State Route (SR) 159/Exit 84/Ashburn and Amboy, is scheduled to begin Sunday, March 21. There will be lane closures, but the contractor will be working overnight from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. The project is currently scheduled to finish in the fall of 2021.
A start date hasn’t been announced for the second maintenance project to restripe I-75 from south of Southwell Boulevard in Tift County to south of Hat Creek in Turner County. That’s about 14 miles. The work will improve the striping reflectivity, which will help drivers stay safe. Hours of work and traffic interruptions will be released to the public before work begins. This project is scheduled to finish at the end of 2021.
