Due to construction on the Murray Morgan Bridge, southbound Interstate-705  will close July 25, July 28 and July 29. Northbound I-705 will close July 26 and July 27. These nighttime closures are necessary to allow the work platforms to be installed on the bridge. Installation of the work platforms will occur at night from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Signage will be in place to notify traffic. Construction to fix the lift span and restore vehicle traffic to the bridge started in mid-April and work is projected to be substantially complete by the end of 2012.
