Roadwork is expected to blight travel plans all over metro Atlanta’s highways this weekend, including on I-75, I-85 and Ga. 400. But perhaps the biggest pain will continue to be I-285, the highway that touches drivers in every direction. Re-paving on the north end continues this weekend.
WHAT ARE THEY DOING
Repaving the western top end of I-285 for the first time since 1995.
CLOSED THIS WEEKEND:
Some ramps at I-75 and I-285
Three right lanes from I-75 to Cobb Parkway
Three right lanes from Ashford-Dunwoody Road to Roswell Road
Three right lanes from Cobb Parkway to Riverside Drive
9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday. Strikes a balance: avoids rush hour but allows crews to keep going without setting up and moving out each night and morning.
$56 million for the stretch between Paces Ferry Road in Cobb County and Ashford Dunwoody Road in DeKalb.
