Transform 285/400: I-285 Westbound Shift Advances Bridge Reconstruction This Weekend

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]To further advance I-285 bridge reconstruction as part of the Transform 285/400 project, the contractor for the Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) will implement the second step of Phase 2 traffic pattern changes along I-285 westbound over Glenridge Drive and State Route (SR) 400. This will mirror what occurred eastbound Sunday, February 26 over newly built bridge sections on I-285.

Beginning this weekend, I-285 westbound traffic will shift to the inside lanes on the new bridges over Glenridge Drive and SR 400. While crews are implementing this second step of Phase 2, a continuous weekend lane closure will be in effect from Friday, March 3, to Sunday, March 5, westbound between Peachtree Dunwoody Road and Glenridge Drive.

This second step of Phase 2 allows crews to demolish and reconstruct the exterior portions of the I-285 bridges over Glenridge Drive and SR 400 in the westbound direction. The same shift will follow in the next few weeks on the I-285 bridge over Peachtree Dunwoody Road. This step-by-step approach will allow construction crews to progress the work on all three I-285 bridges.

During these lane shifts, two lanes in each direction will remain open during the daytime hours, with the potential for additional overnight lane closures, which would further reduce available travel lanes.

WHEN/WHERE:

Friday, March 3 at 11 p.m. to Saturday, March 4 at 11 p.m. – One left lane on I-285 westbound from Peachtree Dunwoody Road to Glenridge Drive

Motorists traveling on I-285 westbound will be reduced to two lanes starting at Peachtree Dunwoody Road to Glenridge Drive.

Saturday, March 4 at 11 p.m. to Sunday, March 5 at 5 a.m. – Three lane closure on I-285 westbound from Peachtree Dunwoody Road to Glenridge Drive

Motorists traveling on I-285 westbound will be reduced to one lane starting at Peachtree Dunwoody Road to Roswell Road.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Click here for more information.
