Additionally, for your convenience, the following exits will be available to motorists choosing to travel in the contraflow lanes (normal East-bound lanes converted to West-bound lanes).

• Exit 143 - SR 30 in Bryan County 
• Exit 116 - US 301 in Bullock County 
• Exit 104 - SR 23/121 in Candler County 
• Exit 90 - US 1 in Emmanuel County 
• Exit 71 - SR 15 in Treutlen County 
• Exit 67 - SR 29 in Laurens County 
• Exit 51 - US 441 in Laurens County

The Interstate can be re-entered only by using the regular Westbound entrance ramps. However, in Savannah, there are several points where the Eastbound exit ramps will be converted into Westbound entrance ramps. These ramps will provide extra access into the contraflow lanes. The ramps are:

• Chatham Parkway 
• SR 307 between Savannah and I-95

The one-way operation of I-16 will end west of Dublin. To end the one-way operation, traffic west of US 441 will be merged into a single lane in both the normal West-bound lanes and the contra-flow lanes.
