Through the weekend, crews will be closing lanes on I-285 and Ga. 400, along with local roads, as part of the four-year project to overhaul one of metro Atlanta’s most important interchanges.
This means closures on large northern metro roads like Roswell Road, Mount Vernon Highway and Johnson Ferry Road.
Now through Sunday, expect workers pacing traffic on I-285 eastbound and the westbound on-ramps to Ga. 400 north and south from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. This is to let crews get staff and materials to the work sites, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.

This is all part of the nearly $800 million remake of the interchange.
Previously reported as one of the biggest highway projects in Georgia history, it entails: “new I-285 interchanges at I-20 east and west of Atlanta, new Ga. 400 express lanes from I-285 to McGinnis Ferry Road and truck-only lanes on northbound I-75 from McDonough to I-475.”
Crews broke ground on the project in late 2016 and are expected to finish in 2020.
