Paving crews will start work June 24 on resurfacing the southbound lanes of Interstate 75 from Henry County to Butts County, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.

This summer, the Georgia Department of Transportation will mill and resurface both northbound and southbound lanes of 15 miles of Interstate 75 from Henry County to Butts County.

The project will extend from the Ga. 155 interchange (exit 216) in Henry County to the Ga. 36/Jackson-Barnesville interchange (exit 201) in Butts County. Construction crews with E.R. Snell Contractor Inc. will start working on the southbound lanes in Henry County Jun. 24, GDOT officials said, and will move southward as they progress. A lane closure will be installed around the work crews and signage will be placed in advance of the work zone.

Crews with C.W. Matthews Contracting Company are scheduled to begin work on the northbound lanes of the project in mid-July. The entire project is expected to be completed in winter of 2019.

All work with this project will be done in overnight shifts starting at 9 p.m. and ending at 5 a.m., so that the heavier daytime traffic is affected as little as possible, GDOT said.

Any changes to the scheduling regarding the Independence Day week will be announced in advance of the holiday.
