Bibb: Traffic Shift on I-75 and I-475 Near Hartley Bridge Road

The Georgia Department of Transportation announces plans to shift southbound traffic on Interstates 75 and 475 on Wednesday, July 29, near Exit 155 (Hartley Bridge Road).

Beginning at 9 p.m. Wednesday, July 29 until 6 a.m. Thursday, July 30, motorists should expect the following lane shifts to be in place:

the current I-75 southbound (SB) traffic will be shifted to the left (approximately 48 feet) onto the newly paved lanes
the off-ramp on I-75 SB to Hartley Bridge Road will shift north slightly in order to complete the new ramp
the new exit from I-475 SB to I-75 SB will be opened to traffic
the entrance ramps from Hartley Bridge Road to I-75 NB and I-475 NB will be changed to reflect final configuration

The Georgia DOT notes that the above construction schedules are proposed activities planned by the contractors and may change due to weather conditions or other factors.
Motorists will utilize these lanes while construction is completed on the new lanes. As in any work zone, motorists are reminded to pay special attention to traffic control devices, signs and posted speed limits to ensure safe passage through the work zone.

Georgia DOT urges travelers to call 511 for updated information about this or any other construction project on interstates and state routes. Georgia 511 is a free phone service that provides real-time traffic and travel information statewide, such as traffic conditions, incidents, lane closures, and delays due to inclement weather. Callers also can transfer to operators to request assistance or report incidents 24 hours a day, seven days a week. More information is available at

The Georgia Department of Transportation is committed to providing a safe, seamless and sustainable transportation system that supports Georgia’s economy and is sensitive to both its citizens and its environment. For general information on the Georgia DOT, please visit our Website (
