Police to restrict Ga. 400 on-ramps, Buckhead to Sandy Springs

State highway officials announced more overnight lane closures and traffic pacing for the reconstruction of the Ga. 400/I-285 interchange in the top-end Perimeter area of North Fulton and DeKalb counties.

The two left lanes of eastbound and westbound I-285 between Peachtree Dunwoody and Roswell roads will be closed for bridge construction, and police will pace traffic, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly Tuesday, Feb. 5, through Friday, Feb. 8, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.

Also, three general purpose lanes of northbound Ga. 400 will be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Friday through Saturday, Feb. 9, from Glenridge Drive to I-285.

During these hours, police will slow traffic to about 15 mph and temporarily restrict traffic from entering northbound Ga. 400 from Lenox Road in Buckhead to Abernathy Road in Sandy Springs. Impacted northbound entrance ramps will be Lenox Road, the Glenridge Connector, eastbound and westbound I-285, and Hammond Drive.

Finally, the ramp from northbound Ga. 400 to eastbound I-285 will be closed for geotechnical investigations from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., Saturday through Sunday, Feb. 10. The recommended detour is for motorists to continue north on Ga. 400, exit at Abernathy Road to Sandy Springs, and re-enter Ga. 400 south to I-285 east.
