McDuffie County slab repair slated to begin Tuesday

THOMSON, GA (WFXG) - The Georgia Department of Transportation to begin slab repair on Tuesday, Apr. 23.

The GDOT crews will start repairs at 8:30 a.m. on I-20 westbound near Exit 175. Travelers will have advance warning before approaching mile marker 173.5.

The Department will saw cut, remove, pour back and seal this location in McDuffie County. Daily work closures could run until Thursday depending on progress. Crews will minimize traffic interruptions but there is a cure time required once poured, meaning drivers could see one lane with no activity at times.

Though this is a spot fix for routine maintenance, Georgia DOT does have an upcoming large-scale maintenance contract planned for widespread slab replacement from mile 171 to mile 191 to improve the ride quality.
