This portion of Interstate 75, highlighted in red, will be resurfaced starting on Monday. According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, the project is expected to run through the winter.

McDONOUGH — A portion of Interstate 75 in Henry, Spalding and Butts counties will be resurfaced starting June 24.

A total of 15 miles of the northbound and southbound lanes of I-75 will be milled and resurfaced. The project will run from the Ga. Highway 155 interchange, Exit 216 in Henry County, to the Ga. Highway 36/Jackson-Barnesville interchange, Exit 201 in Spalding County.

A lane closure will be installed around the work crews, and signage will be placed in advance of the work zone.

Crews with E.R. Snell Contractor Inc. will start work on the southbound lanes next Monday in Henry County, and will move southward as they progress on the road construction.

Crews with C.W. Matthews Contracting Company will begin work on the northbound lanes in mid-July. The project is expected to be completed this winter.

Work will be done in overnight shifts, starting at 9 p.m. and ending at 5 a.m. in an effort to minimize impacts on daytime traffic.

Changes to the scheduling for the Independence Day week will be announced in advance of that holiday.
