Interstate 95 travels through southeastern Georgia, from the Golden Isles and Brunswick north to the Savannah area. All 111.82 miles of the freeway accommodate six lanes of traffic, with a few segments expanded to eight lanes. The majority of motorists taking I-95 through the Peach State are headed for destinations in either Florida or the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern States. Some commuter interests use the route at Brunswick and Savannah otherwise. Additionally the route serves ports in both Brunswick and Savannah.

Widening of Interstate 95 through Georgia formally wrapped up during a dedication held on December 11, 2010 in McIntosh County. The $1-billion project kicked off in 1993 in Chatham County and concluded with $533 million in construction through Glynn and McIntosh Counties. Work on the original four-lane freeway started in 1965.1

A new exit was added to Interstate 95 in Camden County. The Horsestamp Church Road diamond interchange (Exit 22) opened on April 11, 2012. The $10.9 million project commenced on October 18, 2010, improving access to the east end of Dover Bluff and Waverly.2

I-16 and I-95 through Chatham County were completed in 1977-78. Completion of I-95 allowed through traffic to bypass Savannah and the Talmadge Bridge (U.S. 17 Alternate) over the Savannah River.3
