Paving of I-24 in Tennessee to Affect Several NW Georgia Highways

by: Summer Kelley

Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) issued a press release warning Northwest Georgia counties of possible traffic delays due to paving of I-24 in Tennessee.

According to the press release, weather permitting, on July 6 Tennessee Department of Transportation will begin resurfacing I-24 from the Georgia/Tennessee state line to the I-24/I-75 split in Chattanooga. Overnight lane closures will take place Sunday through Thursday from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. during the paving project.

Motorists in Georgia should expect traffic delays extending to I-75, I-24, I-59, and Highway 41 during the resurfacing.  "Advisory: Motorists are advised to expect delays, exercise caution, and reduce their speed while traveling through work zones. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. Call 511, visit, or download the Georgia 511 app. Our maintenance team members who repair roads and bridges and our project teams who oversee construction projects are continuing their essential work, while following sanitary work practices prescribed by health agencies to protect themselves and the public from the coronavirus, as are most state DOTs in the U.S."
