Deal Announces Partnership with South Carolina to Replace I-20 Bridges
July 13, 2016
Governor Nathan Deal has announced a partnership with South Carolina to replace existing I-20 bridges over the Savannah River and the Augusta Canal and add lanes on I-20 to Exit 1 in South Carolina. The $75 million project will enhance safety and operations on both sides of the Savannah River.
The proposed replacement bridges will each provide three travel lanes in each direction, as well as a refuge area for vehicles. I-20 will be widened from four to six lanes from River Watch Parkway (Exit 200) in Georgia to West Martintown Road (Exit 1) in South Carolina.
Georgia DOT and the South Carolina DOT will pay a proportional share of preliminary engineering and construction costs. The project is slated to be put out to bid in fall 2018
