GA DOT — I-285 RESURFACING SCHEDULE FOR 11/2-11/7

Georgia DOT is again warning motorists of long delays and major backups in both directions on the I-285 top end this weekend as crews work on the mainline in both directions and close several ramps as part of the massive resurfacing project, weather permitting.

All weekend, three right lanes will be closed eastbound from I-75 to Long Island drive and three right lanes will be closed westbound from Northside Drive to Powers Ferry Road. Crews will also close and reopen several ramps along the top end. During the ramp closures, signed detours will be in place. Below is the construction schedule for this weekend and next week’s paving work.

“We only have a couple of weekends left until the nighttime temperatures get too cold and we have to stop paving this season,” said GDOT District Construction Engineer Lee Upkins. “Please bear with us and avoid the 285 top end if possible, but if you have to go through there, give yourself extra time.”

The contractor will return in the spring to place the final layer of asphalt and complete the project.
