Augusta, GA – The Georgia Department of Transportation District Two Concrete Crew is scheduled to finish replacing Interstate 20 slabs on the westbound side between the Savannah River and Augusta Canal this week starting Monday, August 31st until Thursday, September 3rd, if necessary.
Lane closures will start on the South Carolina side of the Savannah River to shift traffic to the opposite lane of work being performed.
Drivers should be aware that slower speeds are necessary due to only one lane of travel in this area. Please be patient and alert as the Georgia DOT sets up the lane closure and works just a few short feet from passing traffic. Expect delays for the duration of this slab replacement.
Workers will be actively working from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. each day through Thursday, September 3rd, if needed. The work will be going on on the westbound side of I-20 at mile markers 201.5 to 201.
This is a WORK ZONE and extreme caution is necessary. Drivers are advised to reduce speeds as they travel through this and all work zones. Message signs, barrels and/or cones will be utilized to alert the public of the upcoming changes. Drivers should be aware that personnel and equipment will be operating in close proximity to travel lanes.
