I-16 lane closures planned in Twiggs County

Installation of bird netting on the Ga. 96 bridge is expected to close lanes on Interstate 16 in Twiggs County.

Georgia Department of Transportation contractors will need to close single lanes in both directions between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, depending on the weather.

Delays are expected between mile markers 23 and 24 as workers put up the netting to prevent birds from nesting.
