Overnight, Daytime Lane & Ramp Closures on I-20 in Douglas County for Resurfacing

Lane and ramp closures scheduled for I-20 from Georgia DOT...

Georgia Department of Transportation contractors will continue lane closures on I-20 eastbound and 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 eastbound: Continuous day and overnight lane closures are scheduled in alternating two right lanes between SR 5/Bill Arp Road and Sweetwater Creek on I-20 eastbound each night beginning Tuesday, July 23 through Thursday, July 25, 3:00 p.m. until 5:30 a.m. the following mornings.

I-20 westbound: Overnight lane closures are scheduled in the center and right lanes between Sweetwater Creek and SR 5/Bill Arp Road on I-20 westbound on Tuesday, July 23, beginning at 7:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. the following days.

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.
