That means, if plans go as expected, you can expect to travel more smoothly, with four lanes, beginning Wednesday.
A news release from MDOT specified the changes:
The head-to-head (two-way) traffic in place on the westbound lanes will be diverted back to the regular four-lane interstate configuration. The temporary ramps at the Forest interchange will be removed and replaced with the regular exit and entrance ramps. After the traffic is switched to four-lanes, the concrete median barrier wall will be removed from the westbound lanes.
I-20 in Scott County was completely re-constructed between Highway 481 to Highway 501 (10 miles), and will be milled and overlaid between Highway 501 and the Scott/Newton County line (7.8 miles). A final surface course will be placed over the entire project as weather permits utilizing temporary lane closures.
MDOT would like to thank everyone for their patience and safety awareness during this construction project. It is MDOT’s and Superior Asphalt’s goal to safely finish this project as soon as possible and provide a safe and smooth surface for the traveling public.
