(WRDW/WAGT) – We’re On Your Side with a list of road projects that start after Easter across the area.
I-20 / State Line
Traffic will shift on I-20 eastbound from Exit 200 to the South Carolina state line starting Tuesday, April 18. Contractors will work in this area eastbound and westbound until May. Closures will last from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays as weather permits.
Workers will be doing soil test boring and this is associated with the project to replace the existing I-20 bridges over the Savannah River and Augusta Canal and add lanes on I-20 to Exit 1.
I-20 westbound in Columbia County
Contractors returned to continue surface grinding activities on Interstate 20 westbound just past Exit 194 in Columbia County on Tuesday, April 18.
This ongoing pavement enhancement project will remain westbound through the end of the week. Expect delays and please slow down and merge when advanced warning indicates changing conditions ahead.
Crews are at the following locations:
- Tuesday: Mile 193 back to roughly mile 190.
- Wednesday: Mile 189-186
- Thursday: Mile 186-183
- Friday and Saturday: Mile 183-180
Crews have instructions to get out of the roadway as soon as possible each afternoon. This is especially so on Fridays.
Wrens Highway, Thomson
Resurfacing will begin on SR 17/Wrens Highway from the Jefferson County line to SR 12/Hill Street Monday and last from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Flaggers and a pilot car will be used to navigate traffic around the resurfacing.
Drivers will see lane closures starting on the Jefferson County end of the overall 13.4-mile project into Warren and McDuffie County.
Wrightsboro Road, Grovetown
A temporary lane closure will occur on Wrightsboro Road at the intersection of John Deere Parkway to Horizon South Parkway due to road widening.
The lane closure will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, April 17 and Tuesday, April 18; weather-permitting, and the road will be down to one lane with two-way traffic.
The lane closures will shift from one side of the road to the other and will be controlled by flaggers.
