I-75 ramp to U.S. 35 closed for 6 months

The ramp from northbound Interstate 75 to eastbound U.S. 35 is now closed for the next six months  for a project.

The $1.8 million project started Tuesday night when ODOT closed the ramp to repair the ramp’s bridge deck.

The work had been scheduled to begin Monday, but was delayed for a day, the department said.

ODOT recommends drivers use a detour that would have drivers exit I-75 north to U.S. 35 west and exit onto James H. McGee Blvd., before reentering the highway onto eastbound U.S. 35.
