Sandy Springs officials say that blasting operations will occur Monday through Thursday during daytime hours, twice a week for about six months.

During the blasting, I-285 eastbound traffic pacing will begin at Roswell Road and stretch to Perimeter Center Parkway. Traffic pacing along I-285 westbound will start at Chamblee Dunwoody Road and go to west of Perimeter Center Parkway. Traffic on Perimeter Center Parkway from Lake Hearn Drive to Hammond Drive will be stopped before and during the blasting operation.

MARTA will provide a flagging operator during the blasting to coordinate train operations.
