FULTON COUNTY: Lane Closure Advisory for the Interstate 285 Westbound Auxiliary Lane Project

On September 5, 2023, a 60-day continuous lane closure was implemented so crews could begin the reconstruction of the Mt. Vernon Highway bridge over I-285 (listed below). There may be additional temporary overnight lane closures and traffic pacing as needed.

·        I-285 eastbound single, left lane and shoulder closure between Riverside Drive and Roswell Road for a half-mile

·        I-285 westbound single, left lane and shoulder closure between Roswell Road and Riverside Drive at Mt. Vernon Highway for a half-mile

The I-285 Westbound Auxiliary Lane project extends the auxiliary lane between Roswell Road and Riverside Drive, as well as reconstructs the Mt. Vernon Highway bridge over I-285.

The I-285 Westbound Auxiliary Lane project is one of the I-285 Advanced Improvement Projects and is part of the large-scale MMIP projects advancing across the state to create additional capacity to improve freight movement, provide operational improvements and efficiencies, enhance safety, and decrease travel times on the transportation network.

ADVISORY: Exact time may change due to weather conditions. There may be intermittent traffic pacing and lane and ramp closures that occur within the work zone in addition to this notice. Motorists are advised to expect delays, exercise caution, reduce their speed while traveling through work zones, stay alert, and watch for workers. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. Call 511, visit 511ga.org, or download the Georgia 511 app.
