Langford Parkway ramp to close for repairs

The ramp from I-85 northbound to Arthur Langford Parkway will be closed this weekend for crews to repair a bridge joint, transportation officials said Thursday.

The closure, which begins at 9 p.m. Friday and runs through 5 a.m. Monday, will also affect the ramp from Metropolitan Parkway to I-85 northbound, said Crystal Paulk-Buchanan, spokeswoman for the state Department of Transportation.

She said I-85 northbound motorists bound for Langford Parkway will be routed onto Cleveland Avenue then to I-75 northbound, where they can access Langford Parkway.

Motorists can also continue north on I-85 to University Avenue, then go south on I-85 to Langford Parkway.
