SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Savannah Fire Rescue and other first responders had to shut down the ramp from eastbound I-16 onto I-516 south to rescue a road surveyor who became overheated.

The man couldn’t make it back up the embankment on his own, so firefighters helped pull him up to safety.

He is expected to be OK.

The road has reopened.
