The $16 million project will combine the I-285 exit ramps to Peachtree Industrial Boulevard north and south and adjust the horizontal curve of the north exit ramp to reduce a bottleneck from I-285. The work is expected to be finished in 2023.
The interchange is one of several projects GDOT is pursuing in advance of building toll lanes on the top half of the Perimeter. Other preliminary projects include several new I-285 bridges east of Atlanta and an auxiliary lane extension between Roswell Road and Riverside Drive. Work on those projects also is expected to begin this year.
