Construction causes big traffic tie-ups on Macon interstate

Construction from a Georgia Department of Transportation project is causing traffic to back up on Interstate 75 South in Bibb County this afternoon.

The construction was taking place on Interstate 16 East between mile markers 2 and 3, but the impact was such that traffic was affected on I-75 South before the split as well.

According to the GDOT Web site, the roadwork was scheduled to be finished by 3:30 p.m.
