Construction project closes part of Ocmulgee Heritage Trail


MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A portion of the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail is closing Wednesday as construction continues on the I-16/I-75 Interchange reconstruction project.

Officials with Parks and Beautification says you won’t be able to access the trail from Central City Park and you won’t be able to cross the MLK Bridge.

Crews with the Georgia Department of Transportation will begin installing storm drain pipes preventing people from accessing this part of the trail.

GDOT is widening the interchange as part of an effort to improve safety for drivers.
