Laurens: I-16 Westbound Reopened Yesterday

WHERE: I-16 westbound at US 441 Exit 51

WHAT: At 7:35 a.m. yesterday morning (Monday) Georgia DOT crews reopened the I-16 westbound travel lanes beginning at US 441 following damage to the State Route 257 bridge near Dublin. Crews continued round-the-clock repair efforts and were able to restore early morning access to the westbound lanes; additionally they kept detoured traffic flowing smoothly during the height of the holiday travel. Bryant Poole, Georgia DOT Director of Operations stated, “A lot of hard work and determination has been put forth to accomplish this huge and challenging task.” Thanks for everyone's support and patience.”

The next task involves awarding the final bridge repair work to contract so that it can be completed in its entirety.
