Franklin County: Single Lane Closures on Interstate 85 for continued work on Weight-In-Motion Project

By AccessWDUN staff

Contractors with the Georgia Department of Transportation will install new poles north and south bound on Interstate 85 (I-85) in Franklin County on Monday and Tuesday nights.

This work will mean intermittent single lane closures through Wednesday morning, March 29, near the North Fairview Road overpass over I-85.

Northbound lane closures will begin Monday, March 27, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Southbound lane closures will begin Tuesday, March 28, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

These poles are a part of the new Weigh-In-Motion upgrades which will allow trucks to be “weighed” while continuing along the mainline.
