The $8.5 million resurfacing project of Interstate 95 beginning north of I-16 and extending to Savannah River Bridge at the Georgia/South Caroline State line started Sunday, July 9. Reeves Construction Company will be milling and resurfacing within two mile-long lane closures on the 12-mile project limits. General nighttime work hours are 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., Sunday through Thursday nights. This project should be competed in the Fall of this year. All work is weather contingent.Single and double lane closures should be expected nightly while contractors paving activities are underway. Periodic ramp closures will be utilized for the scope of work required on entrance and exit ramps, closure details will be forth coming.
This project is needed due to the asphalt deterioration and wheel rutting. This section of I-95 has not been resurfaced since the I-95 widening project in the late nineties.
