TRAFFIC WATCH: I-75 resurfacing project has resumed in Cobb

The Georgia Department of Transportation will resume resurfacing Interstate 75 in Cobb County.

Crews will work along the 11-mile stretch of the interstate from the Chattahoochee River in Fulton County to just north of Allgood Road and along I-285 eastbound over I-75 to just west of the Chattahoochee River bridge.

Starting at 9 p.m. Friday, April 12 through 5:30 a.m. Monday, April 15, crews will close three right lanes on the northbound side of the interstate between Terrell Mill Road and Delk Road. GDOT crews will also close the I-75 northbound exit ramp to Delk Road. Motorists will be detoured to the South Marietta Parkway interchange to access Delk Road.

At 1 a.m. Sunday, April 14, the South Marietta Parkway entrance ramp to I-75 southbound will be closed so crews can begin milling and inlaying the outside shoulder. This closure should remain in effect until 5:30 a.m. April 15.

The state agency will have detour and message boards in place to help re-route traffic. To minimize delays, most of these lane closures will be restricted to nighttime and weekend hours.

“We strongly advise motorists to be prepared, plan ahead and know before you go,” said Georgia DOT Metro District Engineer Kathy Zahul. “This highly anticipated resurfacing project will create a smoother and safer ride for all commuters. We ask motorists to please pardon our progress and pack your patience while on the road.”
