 Press Release
ATLANTA –Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) contractors will implement a traffic shift in conjunction with the ongoing rehabilitation of the I-75 southbound Bridge over Barrett Parkway in Cobb County.
Weather permitting, on Wednesday, December 4, crews will shift three through lanes on I-75 southbound to the right for temporary striping. The temporary striping will remain until the completion of the project in March 2020. Message boards and signage will alert drivers of the traffic shift.
This project will provide rehabilitation of the I-75 northbound and southbound bridges over Barrett Parkway, including bridge joint replacement, deck overhang repairs, replacement of anchor bolts, and painting of the superstructures.

Message boards will give drivers advance notice of the upcoming lane closures. Motorists are advised to expect delays and use signed detours, exercise caution, and reduce their speed while traveling through work zones. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions.
