​​I-16/I-75 Interchange Project

This I-16/I-75 Interchange reconstruction project will improve the safety of the corridor by widening and reconstructing I-75 from Hardeman Avenue to Pierce Avenue and I-16 from I-75 to Walnut Creek within the City of Macon.


The project will improve each of the interstate highways by constructing wider shoulders, concrete barriers and, in most locations, additional lanes. A Collector/ Distributor (CD) road system will be constructed parallel to both I-16 and I-75. Modifications will be made to bridges and surface streets within the project area, to accommodate the additional lanes and CD roads along I-16 and I-75. These improvements will provide opportunities for turning movements, as well as create additional storage for these turning movements.
