TDOT officials said at a press conference on Thursday that they are taking steps to alleviate congestion at I-75's Exit 20 at Cleveland, where traffic getting off at the exit sometimes backs up by the freeway.
Spokesperson Jennifer Flynn said the problem worsened with the recent opening of a Pilot Travel Center at the exit.
Deputy Commissioner/Chief Engineer Paul Degges said work will start after the July 4 holiday weekend on widening the northbound exit.
He said property acquisition is underway on widening the bridge over the freeway.
Funding has already been approved for the interchange project.
