CHATHAM COUNTY, Ga. (WTOC) - Big news for anyone who drives on I-95 or I-16 near Savannah.

Soon you’ll be able to drive on a brand-new bridge ramp connecting the two major interstates.

The high-flying exit ramp will connect drivers on I-16 west to I-95 south. The “partial turbine” bridge replaces the current “cloverleaf” ramp. Georgia Department of Transportation officials say it’s the first-of-its-kind in the state of Georgia and they’re calling it a major milestone.

Crews will officially open the bridge late Thursday night, meaning it will be open for Friday’s morning rush.

A second turbine bridge ramp, connecting I-95 southbound traffic with I-16 eastbound, is expected to open later this year.
