BRADLEY COUNTY, I-75 construction of a concrete Bulb-Tee Beam Bridge, including grading, drainage and paving at the Exit 20 interchange (U.S. 64 Bypass East, U.S. 74 East, SR-311, APD-40) (LM 4.86) in Cleveland: Work continues on this project. Traffic has been shifted to the new temporary alignment at the I-75 southbound exit ramp and onto the first phase of the new bridge over I-75. During this report period, the contractor will continue nighttime demolition operations on the original bridge over I-75. These will begin after 9:30PM and end by 6AM. When necessary, they will detour traffic using the ramps while spans over the interstate are lifted with a crane. They will continue this work during the allowed nighttime hours until the old superstructure has been entirely removed. Additionally, the contractor will be working on clearing and drainage and doing bridge work during this report period. Any work requiring interstate lane closures is limited to Sunday through Thursday nights between 7PM - 6AM. Signs will be posted and flaggers will assist with traffic control if needed.
