New westbound I-20 on-ramp to open near state line
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Georgia Department of Transportation has announced that its construction partners will open a new westbound on-ramp to Interstate 20 on Monday night.
This will connect Exit one of Martintown Road onto I-20, heading west into Georgia.
This opening will create single-lane closures that will allow crews to shift a temporary barrier wall and switch traffic to the newly constructed westbound ramp. The closures will be overnight Monday and Tuesday from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. in westbound I-20.
Authorities urge motorists to expect delays when driving through this work zone.
This is another step forward in the larger project of widening and replacing the I-20 Savannah River bridge, a project that’s expected to be completed by 2023.
The biggest feature of this project is expanding 1.8 miles of the current four lanes of the bridge into six lanes.
