Transform 285 @ 400 Blasting Along I-285 // Oct. 19 – Nov. 6

The Georgia Department of Transportation and its partners will pace traffic on I-285 and stop traffic on Glenridge Drive for the controlled blasting of rock.

Weather and schedule permitting, GDOT will conduct blasting of rock on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 1:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. for the next three weeks. The blasting will allow contractors to begin constructing a collector-distributor (CD) lane. Click here to view the full closure

Activities will include roadway, noise barrier, and bridge construction. Closure times will vary, and travel restrictions include possible delays, reduced speeds, and detours in some areas.
