I-16 slab replacement to require lane closures
Project to be completed during summer
Drivers can expect daily lane closures during concrete slab replacement on the westbound side of Interstate 16 between the Chatham-Effingham county line and the Candler-Emanuel county line, the Georgia Department of Transportation announced. The project is underway and Kiewit Infrastructure South Company started replacing selected slabs earlier this month at mile marker 94 at the Candler-Emanuel line under a $1.8 million maintenance service contract with the GDOT. The other end of the project, at the Chatham-Effingham line, will be near mile post 150. The project is scheduled to be completed in the summer, according to the DOT Traffic will shift about one lane left or right depending on slab locations, stated the news release provided by DOT District 5 spokeswoman Jill Nagel.
