People living near the I-16 /I-75 interchange are getting a look at how they're neighborhoods will be affected by future construction on the roadways.
A handful of people attended a State Department of Transportation meeting at Northwoods Academy. People in the Winship Hills neighborhood previously voted to a place a cherry blossom design on sound barriers that will line the interstate. The project is expected to correct traffic flow and widen lanes on a 6 mile stretch of the two interstates. Construction is set to start in 2018 and should take five years to complete.
The project would shift the I-16 exit to the right hand lane of I-75. People taking the Spring Street exit would also get off on I-75.
