Happening today, beginning at 10am:

Georgia DOT wants motorists to be aware of Interstate 95 traffic paces on Wednesday, July 31 between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. in Bryan & Liberty Counties.

Traffic paces will start southbound near Exit 87 (US 17/Richmond Hill) and northbound near Exit 76 (Midway/Sunbury) ending at or near mile post 83.  These traffic paces will be utilized to remove overhead utility lines across the Interstate at Belfast Keller Road overpass.

Traffic will be paced in both directions at 20 mph typically not exceeding 15 minutes. Law Enforcement will be piloting the traffic paces to maximize safety. Blue lights will be utilized to alert and channel motorists through the area. All work is contingent on weather and other factors.

Motorists are advised to reduce speeds, consider alternate routes and avoid the area. Expect heavy congestion if you must travel on I-95 during paces.

Georgia DOT offers complimentary interstate highway assistance 24/7 for motorists across Georgia. The long-standing Highway Emergency Response Operators (HERO) program services metro Atlanta, while the Coordinated Highway Assistance & Maintenance Program (CHAMP) services the rest of the state. Call 511 for vehicle assistance or to report an issue.
