Joe Palladi makes a point on the timing and quality of construction on one of the region’s most significant transportation projects.

Palladi said months ago he approached the DOT about potholes at I-285 and Ga. 400 and Glenridge Drive.

“It was a shame that it took my email for the contractor to properly maintain the pavement. I ride by there a few times a week and the potholes appear to be starting to lose their filling,” he said.

Palladi also said the ramp from I-285 to Ga. 400 and Glenridge Drive has a signing issue causing congestion and an unsafe condition.

“Couldn’t an overhead guy wire sign be placed there atop poles to inform the motorists of the split?” Palladi wrote.
