Nightly lane closures to update striping and install raised pavement markers on I-75 in Stockbridge start Monday, January 6, and will continue until the project’s completion in late February. The lane closures were originally scheduled in December but delayed due to weather.

Georgia DOT awarded the contract to Peek Pavement Markings, LLC for $588,335 last year. A second project will let in April 2020 to install raised pavement markers between Walt Stephens Road and state route 155, where crews will tie-in with last summer’s resurfacing project to provide continuous reflectors on I-75 through Henry County.


Georgia DOT Press Release

January 6, 2020

What: A project to re-paint lanes on Interstate 75 in northern Henry County was to start in early December, but was delayed due to weather difficulties throughout the month. Pavement marking crews are now scheduled to start permanently striping lanes tonight, Jan. 6, 2020, at 9:00 p.m. The area on Interstate 75 to be re-striped extends from the Clayton County Line (near the Georgia 138 interchange – exit 228) to just south of the Walt Stephens overpass and includes the Interstate 675 interchange.

The crews’ shifts will run every evening starting at 9:00 p.m. and end as follows:

  • Weekdays at 5:00 a.m.
  • Saturday mornings at 10:00 a.m.
  • Sunday mornings at noon

The project is now expected to be completed by the end of February, 2020.

Either one or two lanes will be closed around the work zone, and the closure will travel as the crews’ vehicles move up and down the interstate. Drivers should be aware that lane closures could be in either the southbound or northbound lanes, and they should moderate their speeds in the area and watch for signage alerting them to the possibility of the crew working ahead of them. All motorists should drive through the work zone carefully, paying special attention to the workers and their equipment.

When: Starting Monday, Jan. 6, 2020 through February, 2020; the shifts will start each night of the week at 9:00 p.m. and end at noon on Sundays, at 10:00 a.m. on Saturdays, and at 5:00 a.m. on weekdays

Where: Interstate 75 from the Clayton County Line to just south of the Walt Stephens overpass in Henry County, Georgia
