I-75 to fully reopen; more construction to follow

Road construction that dramatically backed up Interstate 75 near the Bibb-Crawford-Peach county borders will be rescheduled.

Kimberly Larson, a Georgia Department of Transportation spokeswoman, said work expected to be done Thursday night was canceled because a milling machine had broken. No new date has been scheduled for the work, which is expected to close two lanes.

Crews had been repairing the I-75 southbound near Echeconnee Creek in a valley beyond the Sardis Church Road exit. Some of that area has three lanes. Even on Wednesday night well after rush hour, traffic had been backed up to the Hartley Bridge Road exit, and dozens of cars were using a break in a barrier wall to make U-turns onto I-75 northbound.
