Northbound Lanes on I-185 near Fort Benning opening after months of closure

By Katherine Kington - email | Twitter

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  The Georgia Department of Transportation is opening lanes on the I-185 at 6:00 a.m. that have been closed for construction for months.

     The Northbound lanes of one eighty-five are finished with construction.This is the area on Victory Drive leading into Fort Benning.

     This will actually be the shoulder of the new road.

     Kimberly Larson with the Georgia Department of Transportation says this will relieve a lot of traffic for the area.  "It'll definitely  improve the congestion in that area because once we put them onto that new construction then we also have another lining and shoulder to do out there so that is what will be upcoming on that northbound side,"

     In early August construction will shift to the southbound side of the interstate.

     Larson says the construction is right on schedule.
