Expect traffic delays...

ATLANTA - Georgia Department of Transportation contractors will continue lane closures on I-20 westbound between Sweetwater Creek and SR 5/Bill Arp Road in Douglas County for deep milling, inlay and resurfacing on the interstate. Motorists should expect traffic delays and plan for additional travel times, alternate modes of transportation and/or alternate routes to their destinations.

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

I-20 westbound:
Two left lanes closed continuously each night from 7:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. the following days, beginning Tuesday, August 6 through Thursday, August 8, from Sweetwater Creek to SR 5/Bill Arp Road.

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.

Georgia 511 is a free phone service that provides real-time traffic and travel information statewide, including traffic conditions, incidents, lane closures, and delays. Callers can transfer to operators to request assistance or report incidents 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In metro Atlanta, you can also request HERO assistance by calling 511.
