Midday blasting set for I-285/Ga. 400 project in Perimeter area

Traffic pacing on I-285 and stoppages on local streets are to start Monday and continue for about eight weeks as crews blast away rock for a new collector-distributor lane at I-285 and Ga. 400 in North Fulton and DeKalb counties.

The blasting is scheduled for 1:30 to 2 p.m. daily, weather permitting, the Georgia Department of Transportation said. The work is part of the reconstruction of the I-285/Ga. 400 interchange in the top-end Perimeter area.

Traffic pacing is planned on eastbound I-285 at Riverside Drive; westbound I-285 at Ashford Dunwoody Road; the ramp from southbound Ga. 400 to westbound I-285 at Hammond Drive; and the ramp from northbound Ga. 400 to westbound I-285 at Johnson Ferry Road.

Traffic will be stopped on northbound and southbound Glenridge Drive at the on-ramp to westbound I-285; on northbound Glenridge at Johnson Ferry; and at the on-ramp from Roswell Road to eastbound I-285.
