SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Weather permitting, Georgia Department of Transportation construction partners will close the I-16 eastbound ramp (Exit 164A) to I-516 eastbound Friday and Saturday night.
On Friday, June 7 and Saturday June 8 from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., traffic will be detoured with signage indicating a new route. The closure will allow crews to obtain soil samples for design purposes.
