Drivers can expect slow traffic on S.R. 316 in Bethlehem

Construction activities on the State Route 316 interchange at State Route 81 will close the shoulder between Carl Bethlehem Road and S.R. 81 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 13 and 14. This work will be in the westbound shoulder on Sept. 13, and on the eastbound shoulder Sept. 14.

Closing the shoulder will allow the left turn lane eastbound to be extended. These extended turn lanes will lead traffic onto the temporary detour lanes which will be in effect later this month.

The interchange project at S.R. 316 at S.R. 81 was awarded to CMES Inc., in summer of 2017 and has a scheduled completion date of Oct. 31, 2020. This project represents a construction investment of $26 million in Barrow County.
