Interstate 75 State Route 131 (Exit 112, Emory Road) Interchange

 

Overview

The proposed I-75 State Route 131 (Emory Road) interchange project will reconfigure the existing diamond interchange to that of a DDI (Diverging Diamond Interchange).  A DDI is designed to allow two directions of traffic to temporarily cross to the left side of the road.  This cross-over maneuver helps to move high volumes of traffic through the interchange.

Purpose and Need

The purpose of the proposed I-75 State Route 131 (Emory Road) interchange project is to reconfigure the interchange to a DDI (Diverging Diamond Interchange) to improve capacity, safety, and operations.

Proposed Design

The proposed interchange project will reconfigure the traditional diamond interchange to a DDI (Diverging Diamond Interchange) to allow for better traffic operations.  Sidewalks will also be incorporated into the proposed design to allow pedestrians safe access through the interchange. Backage or access roads will also be constructed on the east side of the interchange to allow left turning motorists access to local businesses.
