🛣️ The Details: The Georgia Department of Transportation announced a significant resurfacing project on I-575 southbound, starting at milepost 20 and extending to the beginning of the interstate in Cobb County. Work is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., Sunday through Saturday, beginning April 14, weather permitting. This project will involve both southbound and northbound lanes and is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.

📊 By The Numbers:

  • Route: I-575 southbound from milepost 20 to start of the interstate.
  • Timing: 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., nightly from Sunday to Saturday.
  • Duration: Project expected to last until late 2024.

🌐 The Big Picture: The resurfacing initiative is part of broader efforts to maintain and improve transportation infrastructure in northwest Georgia. Such projects are essential for ensuring safety and efficiency on key routes like I-575, which serves as a vital artery for commuters and freight traffic.

🔍 Why It Matters: Roadwork can significantly impact traffic flow and daily commutes. For those who regularly travel along this route, planning for extra travel time during construction is crucial. Enhanced road conditions post-resurfacing will ultimately lead to safer and smoother commutes.

🛠️ What You Can Do: Motorists are advised to expect delays, exercise caution, and consider alternative routes if possible. Stay informed by checking real-time traffic updates through the Georgia 511 service, available online at, by calling 511, or by using the Georgia 511 mobile app.
