Staff reportDecember 10, 2013 

Interstate 16 East near the Spring Street Bridge has reopened.

Some lanes were closed Tuesday so that Macon police could finish their investigation of a traffic fatality last week.

The department’s Traffic Fatality Unit was scheduled to take measurements and complete additional study of scene evidence related to the fatal collision. The department suggests that motorists find alternate travel routes and to plan for delays.
