In spring of 2019, the Georgia Department of Transportation closed critical Interstate 16 Rest Area 87 due to water main failure leading to low water pressure issues. The failed line serviced the rest area and surrounding rural area.

The pipe was installed 12 years prior by horizontal directional drill.
