Placeholder Image

COVINGTON - The Georgia Department of Transportation wants the traveling public to be aware of a bridge reconstruction project still affecting westbound Interstate 20 traffic near Exit 90 all weekend.

Olympus Painting Contractors will continue bridge joint repair and replacement on the I-20 bridge over the railroad and Old Atlanta Highway. The inside and middle lanes, along with the off-ramp, will be closed on I-20 westbound from mile 91 to mile 90. The timeframe of continuous work runs from 9 p.m. Friday, July 17 until 5 a.m. Monday, July 20.

With traffic deaths up significantly compared to last year, Georgia DOT urges drivers to DriveAlert ArriveAlive, a campaign imploring motorists to wear their seatbelts, stay off the phone and focus on driving, especially in these work zones.
