Will you be traveling to Savannah?
Contractors for Georgia DOT will have a ramp closure on Interstate 16 eastbound at Exit 157B to Interstate 95 northbound and interchange bridge lane closures on I-95 northbound Sunday, Aug. 20 from 10 p.m. through Monday at 6 a.m. for bridge deck work. Enforcement will be on site to enhance safety.
Traveling on I-16 eastbound to I-95 northbound:
Motorists wanting to connect to I-95 northbound will Exit 160/Dean Forest Road. At the top of the ramp, they will make a left turn onto Dean Forest Road toward the I-16 on-ramp where they then make a left turn to enter I-16 westbound and connect to the I-95 northbound ramp.
Contractors will be working on I-95 northbound bridge over I-16, which requires the ramp closure to lay polymer overlay on the bridge deck and replace bridge joints as part of I-95 bridge preservation project in Chatham County.
These closures will reopen early if the work is completed ahead of schedule. All work is weather contingent.
Whenever you approach a work zone: slow down; allow extra distance between vehicles; read signs; obey road crew flaggers; and expect the unexpected.
