I-16 / I-75 Interchange Improvements Project Updates for May 16-23, 2021

Contractors for the Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) will continue construction activities related to the I-16/I-75 Interchange Improvement Project next week in Macon-Bibb County.  Weather permitting, the scheduled activities beginning Sunday, May 16, 2021 through Sunday, May 23, 2021 are listed below.

New Lane Closures:

  • Weather and on-site conditions permitting, contractors will install ”rolling” single lane closures on I-16 eastbound from the I-75 interchange to Coliseum Drive/ Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, approximately two miles, on Sunday, May 16 from 9:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. Monday morning.  The location of the closures will “roll” from one lane to another as workers restripe all lanes of the roadway.  These closures will help ensure safety for workers and drivers traveling through the area.   

Ongoing, Long-term Closures:

  • The dedicated right turn lane on the I-16 eastbound off-ramp to Spring Street will remain closed through the spring of 2021.
  • The permanent lane closure on Coliseum Drive/Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard southbound between Clinton Street to Riverside Drive; southbound traffic in that area is currently reduced to one lane.
  • The far right lane of I-75 northbound at the Georgia 19/Georgia Avenue exit (exit 164) is closed to traffic for several months.
  • Spring Street’s far right lane at the I-16 westbound on-ramp as well as the right-hand on-ramp to I-16 westbound are both closed for several months; the Spring Street on-ramp to I-16 westbound has been relocated to the far left lane.
