AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Construction work this week again will affect drivers on Interstate 20 at the Georgia-South Carolina state line.

On Tuesday at 8 p.m., rolling lane closures will take place on westbound I-20 near the Savannah River bridge, allowing construction crews to remove any large roadway debris on the shoulders.

Rolling lane closures on the eastbound side will begin at 9 p.m. and are scheduled to conclude by midnight.

On Thursday, there will be a right-lane closure on westbound I-20 from mile marker 1 in South Carolina to the Augusta Canal to allow construction crews access to set a new Augusta Canal bridge span. At various times, both the left and right lanes as well as the shoulders of I-20 in both directions may be affected. Traffic will always be moving in both directions.

All work depends on weather and may be postponed.

Motorists are advised to expect delays and drive with caution through the work zone.
