Spokeswoman Cissy McNure said Friday that single lanes of eastbound and westbound I-20 from mile marker 201 to 200 will be closed from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday for at least the next week while crews make repairs to the concrete slab.
Repairs have been going on for more than a week with traffic sometimes backing up to standstill for miles.
Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Ramone Lamkin said that there have been a few minor accidents during the lane closure but that that’s not unusual for any similar repairs on construction on a major road.
“In the afternoon, it kind of backs up so we send (a deputy) out there to monitor traffic,” he said.
Travelers are advised to allow for delays or seek an alternate route during heavy-traffic hours.
