Weather permitting, these are the scheduled overnight and daytime closures:

I-20 eastbound:  

  • Tuesday, July 16 from 3:00 p.m. until 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday between Chapel Hill and SR 92 – two right lanes and the right shoulder lane closed. 
    • The SR 92 ramp onto I-20 eastbound will be closed. Traffic will be detoured onto I-20 westbound to the Chapel Hill Road exit, and then to I-20 eastbound. 
    • The I-20 eastbound exit ramp to SR 92 will be closed. Traffic will be detoured onto I-20 eastbound to the Lee Road exit, and then to I-20 westbound.

I-20 westbound: Overnight lane closures are scheduled at various locations on I-20 westbound on Wednesday, July 17 until the following morning. More details on the work plan are to come.

These activities are needed to improve the deteriorating condition of the roadway. Lane closures are needed to help ensure safety for drivers and workers, as large equipment and frequent truck movements are needed on-site for these activities. 

Motorists traveling in the area are reminded to reduce their speeds while traveling through the work zone. As always, Georgia DOT encourages motorists to wear seatbelts, eliminate distractions behind the wheel, and plan their routes before getting on the road by calling 511 for real-time information on work status and traffic conditions.
