COLUMBIA COUNTY, GA (WFXG) -

Starting Monday, March 7, G-DOT says drivers will have to beware of lane closures on I-20 in Columbia County. The closures will happen in both eastbound and westbound lanes, at different times of the day.

Here’s a breakdown of when and where closures are expected:

  • Monday, March 7: I-20 westbound, mile 188.3 to 187.5, one right lane closed from 9 a.m. to Noon;
  • Monday, March 7: I-20 eastbound, mile 186.5 to 187.5, one right lane closed Noon to 4 p.m.
  • Tuesday, March 8: I-20 westbound, mile 188, one right lane closed from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.
  • Wednesday, March 9: I-20 westbound, mile 188, one left lane closed from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.

This is part of a statewide project to install weigh scales in the outside interstate lanes. This will help prevent tractor trailers from having to get off the road to use the weigh station – something that can cause major delays. The new “virtual” scales will send information to the nearby weigh station and to Georgia Highway Patrol officers for enforcement purposes.
