I 275 widening project

Another road widening project in our area was started last week.  I-275 will be widened from four lanes to six lanes (3 in each direction) from north of Bearss to the apex at I-75.  The new lanes will be built in the median and a concrete barrier will be added in the median on the southern portion of the project.

Additionally, some newer technology will be included in the project: 5 cameras, 20 microwave vehicle detectors, fiber optic cable, and one message sign.  The 5.7 mile project will cost $20.5 million and is estimated to be completed in the fall of 2012.
