The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) last week broke ground on a $500 million highway interchange project near Macon, GA, according to Equipment World.
The Interstate 16/Interstate 75 interchange improvement project will separate local traffic from through traffic, which GDOT officials said would reduce the number of accidents. The upgrades should also ease general congestion, improve access to downtown Macon and improve travel conditions between the Port of Savannah and Atlanta.
In order to minimize negative impact on traffic, the project will be delivered in seven phases, with the first phase’s completion scheduled for summer 2018. GDOT has awarded contracts totaling $268.8 million for the first four phases.
