The ramps from I-75 northbound to First Street and Third Street will be closed beginning Monday, October 15th
at 9 am. These will be 24 hour a day ramp closures. A newly constructed ramp is scheduled to open to motorists in the downtown area in December of 2016.
These ramp closures are due to a contractor reconfiguring I-75 in that location. This is part of the final phase of the I-75 modernization project.
The official detour during these ramp closures is: I-75 North to US 35 East to Jefferson St to First and Third Streets. (motorists can also use Main Street or Edwin C. Moses Boulevard)
Arrow boards and signs will be in place prior to the work zone to alert motorists of the upcoming closure. All work is weather permitting.
Safety is a top priority at ODOT. To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
