Weekend traffic pacing on I-75 in Henry County planned for electric infrastructure upgrade
Terry Cole, Public Affairs Director
Weather permitting, contractors for Georgia Transmission Corporation will pull utility lines across all lanes on I-75 northbound, southbound and reversible lanes between Jodeco Road and Hudson Bridge Road in Henry County on March 18, 2018. The work – part of a critical electric infrastructure upgrade – will require authorities to pace traffic on I-75 for brief periods, causing motorists to drive at a significantly reduced speed so that crews may safely perform the work.
WHEN and WHERE:
Sunday, March 18, 2018 – approximately between 7:00 a.m. and noon
All lanes of northbound, southbound and reversible lanes on I-75 between Jodeco Road and Hudson Bridge Road in Henry County. In addition, access ramps from these exits will be closed during the traffic pacing.
Local law enforcement will help pace traffic. Motorists should expect delays and seek alternate routes. Georgia Transmission Corporation is closely coordinating this essential work with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT).
