I-75 mainline traffic was switched into Phase 5 in November 2015. The current traffic pattern for this phase is as follows. I-75 northbound traffic was shifted to the east side of I-75. Three lanes of I-75 southbound traffic were shifted to the west side of I-75. One lane of I-75 southbound traffic is being maintained via a contraflow lane on the northbound side of I-75. The median of I-75 will be reconstructed in this phase. Phase 5 is anticipated to be complete in the summer of 2016.
