Single lane closure on I-75 in Houston, Dooly continues

A single lane closure on Interstate 75 north and southbound along a stretch in Houston and Dooly counties is expected to remain in place through March, the state Department of Transportation announced.

The lane closure between mile marker 127 and mile marker 117 is required for work crews installing a drainage pipe, according to a state DOT news release issued Friday.

The preliminary work is in preparation for removal and replacement of the inside shoulders of I-75 in both directions between mile marker 127 and mile marker 117, the release stated. The stretch of road is about 10 miles.
