Montgomery County (Monday, November 19, 2012) – The ramps from Second Street and Third Street to I-75 northbound will be closed beginning Monday, November 19th at 9 am. This closure is part of the I-75 Modernization project and will be in effect until the opening of the newly constructed ramp in 2017.
These ramp closures are due to a contractor reconstructing the interstate.
The official detour is: Second St. to Third St. to Jefferson St. to Monument Ave. to Main St. to I-75.
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.
