BETHLEHEM, Ga., – On Monday, August 24, Georgia DOT construction partners will shift traffic to start using the State Route 81 overpass bridge at State Route 316.
Traffic headed east towards Athens will be able to utilize entrance and exit ramps. Two additional ramps are going to be constructed in the next 30 days. Westbound traffic wishing to travel to Atlanta, will be detoured by way of the SR 81 overpass bridge and then to Carl Bethlehem Road to access State Route 316 once again.
Please slow down while traveling through the work zone.
This $27 million project constructs a full diamond urban interchange providing access to and from SR 316 to the cross road SR 81. It was awarded to CMES, Inc. in July 2017.
