On Monday, October 31, 2011, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Interstate 75 southbound between mile markers 309 and 308 in Gordon County motorists should expect a single right lane closure on I-75 southbound between Exit 312/State Route 53 and Exit 306/ Folsom Road.

This lane closure is necessary for Georgia DOT’s maintenance crews to repair the guardrail on this stretch of the Interstate. This maintenance operation and the lane closure it necessitates are weather permitting and subject to change.

Georgia DOT urges travelers to call 511 for updated information about this or any other construction project on interstates and state routes. Georgia 511 is a free phone service that provides real-time traffic and travel information statewide, such as traffic conditions, incidents, lane closures, and delays due to inclement weather. Callers also can transfer to operators to request assistance or report incidents 24 hours a day, seven days a week. More information is available at www.511ga.org.
