Crews to clear debris on I-75 beginning Monday night

TIFTON — Crews will be out clearing debris from Interstate 75 beginning Monday night. Motorists can expect delays and possible lane closures.

This work will begin at approximately 7 p.m. Monday and continue to approximately 7 a.m. Tuesday, and at approximately 7 p.m. Tuesday and continue to approximately 7 a.m. Wednesday on I-75 north and south between mile markers 53 and 55 in Tift County (before and through the area of the new I-75 and Omega/Eldorado Road interchange).

According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, crews for a GDOT contractor will be sweeping debris from the median and outside shoulders of I-75. Lane closures are possible in the inside and outside north and southbound lanes. Traffic pacing may be used to move equipment to and from the median. That means prior to entering the area where crews will be working, law enforcement officers position their vehicles in front of traffic in all lanes in the given direction and escort traffic through the work zone at a slower, controlled speed. This may occur several times during the time frames previously listed.

Delays may occur, so motorists are requested to be patient, obey pacing commands, drive slowly and exercise extreme caution in this work zone.

To contact reporter Latasha Ford, call 382-4321.
