Benning announces I-185 road closures for MLK weekend

spedersen@ledger-enquirer.comJanuary 10, 2014 

The inbound lanes leading to the Interstate 185 access control point will be closed from 3 p.m. Jan. 17 to 5 p.m. Jan. 20.

Motorists will still be able to exit the installation on I-185. The temporary closure is due to lane re-striping.

All other access control points will maintain regular hours. Motorists will still be able to access Fort Benning through Benning Road, 8th Division Road in Harmony Church and Eddy Bridge.

In the event weather prevents the re-striping, the work will be postponed until February. Officials are hoping since Jan. 17-20 is a holiday weekend (Martin Luther King Jr. Day) there will be less disruption.
