GDOT closing portion. of I-285 for construction starting Oct. 8

Starting Saturday, Oct. 8, 2022, the Georgia Dept. of Transportation will close lanes in both directions on I-285 between Ashford Dunwoody Road and Roswell Road for bridge demolition and reconstruction over Glenridge Drive, SR 400, and Peachtree Dunwoody Road.

The eastbound closure will start first with the westbound closure following approximately two weeks later. This work and associated I-285 lane closures are anticipated to take eight months to complete. Motorists should expect profound delays and should avoid I-285 in this area if possible. If your route includes this area, rely on your preferred wayfinding apps for alternate routes and leave early.

Commercial vehicle traffic is required to use I-285 to bypass Atlanta, and with Georgia ranked as a top 5 crash state for CMVs traveling through construction zones, crashes are more likely to occur during the first weeks of the beginning of construction. Please use caution when traveling through those areas.
