I-75 Road Construction
If you are going to be headed to Florida (on I-75) over the next several months (Bike week), I want to give you a good warning about the road construction between exits 84 and 78. Tractor trailers are told to use the left lane. To avoid the rocks and sand being thrown up by the big trucks, most bikes are using the right lane. The right lane is comprised of half the old interstate right lane and the shoulder which puts a sizeable seam in the middle of the lane.
After you get out of the construction going south at the 78 marker, you pick up the nice three and four lanes that have just been finished. With one exception, starting with the right lane and working left, there is a two to three inch lip as you move from lane to lane. That includes coming on from an entrance ramp. If you are driving in the dark hours, you won't see it but you will notice it when your tire catches it. The lip problem goes for about 6 miles.
The construction company that did this wonderful job went broke so the final paving has not and probably will not be completed. There are no warning signs for motorcycles about the lip issue between lanes.
I just wanted to give you all a heads up to be careful coming down thru that area if you are headed south on I-75.
