Beginning May 8, the Kimball Bridge Road bridge over Ga. 400 will be closed for approximately one year as part of the Georgia Department of Transportation’s construction of the Ga. 400 Phase 1 Design-Build project, part of the Ga. 400 Express Lanes project.

The three overpass bridges at Pitts Road, Roberts Drive and Kimball Bridge Road will be replaced with wider, taller structures to accommodate the future express lanes on Ga. 400. Multiuse paths will also be incorporated into the new bridges. The updated structures will provide operational and local road improvements ahead of construction of the express lanes opening in 2024.

Kimball Bridge will close from its intersection with Northwinds Parkway to the intersection with North Point Parkway. Signs will direct drivers through a detour route. Motorists can use Northwinds Parkway or North Point Parkway to Haynes Bridge Road during the year-long closure.

GDOT also warns there may be periodic traffic delays on Ga. 400 between Exit 9 (Haynes Bridge Road) and Exit 10 (Old Milton Parkway).
