Triple lane closures on I-285 this weekend

Georgia Department of Transportation contractors will install overnight triple lane closures on the south end of  I-285 this weekend in Clayton and Fulton counties.

Weather permitting, three left lanes will be closed on I-285 westbound from Airport Tunnel to SR 314/W. Fayetteville Road bridge from 7 p.m. Friday, May 1 until 5 a.m., Monday, May 4. These closures will ensure safety for work crews and drivers as crews perform asphalt paving activities.

The lane closures are related to the resurfacing project on I-285 from the west end of Airport Tunnel Road to SR 14/US 29/Roosevelt Highway, a span of about 3.5 miles.

GDOT officials say this $20 million resurfacing project will deep mill, inlay and restripe the deteriorating roadway.

Officials say the project is on track for completion in December.

Motorists can expect delays and should exercise caution and reduce their speed while traveling through work zones.

According to GDOT, all maintenance team members who repair roads and bridges and project teams who oversee construction projects are continuing their essential work, while following sanitary work practices prescribed by health agencies to protect themselves.
