Lanes reopen after I-285 sinkhole repaired on the Southside

All lanes are open on I-285 West between Old National Highway and Washington Road following overnight sinkhole repairs.

The sinkhole was discovered Wednesday, and Georgia Department of crews worked through the night to fix it.


During the Thursday morning commute, westbound I-285 traffic was diverted onto the Old National Highway collector-distributor ramp, and drivers were forced onto I-285 North.

Additionally, the ramp from I-85 South to I-285 West was closed. Drivers were forced to take the same detour.

For a time, delays were reported on I-285 West, the inner loop and on I-85 North and South in south Fulton County.

Crews left the scene about 10:30 a.m., and the interstate reopened shortly after that.
