Tuesday, May 3 through Thursday, May 5 – Various lane closures on southbound I-75 from north of the I-74 interchange to south of the Hopple Street overpass beginning each night at 8 p.m., reopening to traffic at 6 a.m. the following day.
Friday, May 6 – Various lane closures on southbound I-75 from north of the I-74 interchange to north of the Western Hills Viaduct beginning at 8 p.m. Once lane closures are complete at approximately mid-morning Saturday, all lanes of southbound I-75 will be located on the west side of the interstate; no contraflow lane will exist. Northbound I-75 traffic will not be affected.
Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming lane closures and traffic switch.
