STOCKBRIDGE — Work crews will install continuous lane closures on I-75 northbound in Clayton County this weekend. The work is part of a project to rehabilitate the concrete roadway on I-75 in Henry and Clayton counties. The weekend-long closures are necessary for safety and efficiency, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.

The lane closures will occur in a stretch located just north of the Ga. Highway 138/Jonesboro interchange (mile marker 228) to the Mt. Zion Boulevard interchange (mile marker 231).

Crews with Webber Construction were scheduled to close one lane at 8 p.m. Friday and a second lane at 11 p.m. Friday. The double-lane closures will remain in effect through Monday, Feb. 22, at 6 a.m.

Message boards will be in place to alert northbound drivers ahead of the closures and will also announce any backed-up traffic. Posts will also be made to Georgia DOT — West’s Facebook and Twitter feeds as necessary.
