FYI for those traveling to and from Chatham

Weather permitting, Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) construction partners will close the ramp and interstate lanes at the location below for the 16@95 Improvement Projects, which will widen I-16 and reconstruct the I-16/I-95 Interchange. The lane and ramp closures are necessary for work on the new I-16/I-95 Interchange bridges, widening activities for I-16, and bridge work at the I-16/I-516 Interchange.
