WATCH: Time lapse of Atlanta’s I-85 repair shows epic progress

This story has been updated.

Atlanta's I-85 rebuild after the infamous bridge fire on March 30 is showing some major progress.

In fact, Gov. Nathan Deal announced Wednesday the area will reopen before May 15 — at least a full month ahead of the original June 15 deadline.

On Wednesday, May 10, Georgia Department of Transportation Commissioner Russell McMurry said the northbound lanes probably will be open sometime Saturday and the southbound lanes sometime Sunday.

"Our goal was to get I-85 back open to the people of Georgia as quickly as we could, and to do so we offered incentives for early completion," Georgia Department of Transportation Commissioner Russell R. McMurry said in a news release.

And the incentives are big: If Atlanta’s I-85 construction is completed by May 25, C.W. Matthews (the contractor behind the repairs) will receive an additional $1.5 million. And if it’s completed by May 21, the company will receive $2 million and an additional $200,000 for each day completed before May 21 — up to a maximum of $3.1 million.

The AJC previously reported the repair is expected to cost up to $16.6 million, with the federal government paying 90 percent of the cost.
