Interstate 85 Bridge Rehab Project

Crews with Comanche Construction of Georgia began work on a project to rehabilitate six bridges on Interstate 85 in Troup County on Friday, Apr. 23, 2020 at 9:00 p.m. To reduce the amount of time the workers and their equipment will be in the roadway work zone, teams will rotate on location 24 hours a day, seven days per week for the duration of the project.

A lane closure was installed around the work zone, and will remain in effect as the crews make progress. The closure is set within Interstate 85’s mileposts 1 and 2, in the area of the bridges at the Georgia 18 interchange and Long Cane Creek. The closures through May, 2020 will be as follows (weather permitting): Friday, Apr. 24 at 9 p.m. through Thursday, Apr. 30 at 5 p.m. – Interstate 85 southbound – single left lane closure Friday, May 1 at 9 p.m. through Thursday, May 7 at 5 p.m. – Interstate 85 southbound – single right lane closure Friday, May 8 at 9 p.m. through Thursday, May 14 at 5 p.m. – Interstate 85 southbound – single right lane closure Friday, May 15 at 9 p.m. through Thursday, May 21 at 5 p.m. – Interstate 85 northbound – single left lane closure Friday, May 22 at 9 p.m. through Thursday, May 28 at 5 p.m. – Interstate 85 northbound – single right lane closure Signage was posted in advance of the closures warning motorists to slow down and be alert to the traffic shift. Drivers should expect to drive alert through the area, being aware of the workers and their equipment.

Advisory: Motorists are advised to expect delays, exercise caution, and reduce their speed while traveling through work zones. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. Call 511, visit 511ga.org, or download the Georgia 511 app. Our maintenance team members who repair roads and bridges and our project teams who oversee construction projects are continuing their essential work, while following sanitary work practices prescribed by health agencies to protect themselves and the public from the coronavirus, as are most state DOTs in the U.S.
