VALDOSTA, Ga. (WCTV) -- The Georgia Department of Transportation is scheduled to begin resurfacing 14 miles of Interstate 75 in Lowndes County on Tuesday, August 1.

GDOT said in a news release, "The section of interstate from south of the Cook County line to south of Exit 18/state Route 133 hasn’t been resurfaced in at least 10 years and deficiencies such as rutting result in a rough ride."

Most of the work is scheduled to take place during the evening hours to minimize impacts on traffic, but drivers should expect to see lane closures and possible traffic delays in the area, officials say.

Drivers are being advised that the speed limit will be reduced to 60 miles per hour in the construction zones and are reminded to use caution when traveling through the work areas.

The $10.6 million project is expected to be completed by September 30.
