GDOT Announces Lane Closure Advisory for the I-285/I-20 East Interchange Project

What:

Weather permitting, the Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) contractors will temporarily close interstate lanes at the locations below for the I-285/I-20 East Interchange. The project will reconstruct the interstate system-to-system ramps at the I-285/I-20 East Interchange and add a combination of collector-distributor, or connecting lanes, and auxiliary lanes along I-20 east of the interchange and I-285 north of the interchange. For daily traffic impacts and real-time traffic alerts, please visit Georgia NaviGAtor at www.511ga.org.

When/Where:

Friday, February 23, through Friday, March 1, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. (Daily)

  • Single left lane and left shoulder closure on I-20 eastbound from Columbia Drive (MM 66.8) to I-285 (MM 67.4)

Friday, February 23, through Friday, March 1, from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. (Nightly)

    • 6 a.m. until 1 p.m., two left lanes will be closed. Both ramp lanes from I-20 westbound to I-285 northbound will remain open during this time.
    • 1 p.m. until 6 p.m., the two right lanes of I-20 westbound will be closed. A single lane closure will also be installed on the ramp from I-20 westbound to I-285 northbound.
    • 6 p.m. until 1 a.m. Sunday, March 3, one lane will be closed on I-20 westbound between Wesley Chapel Road and the interchange.

Lane closures help ensure safety for workers and drivers through the project area as crews continue milling, inlay and resurfacing to improve the deteriorating roadway.

Advisory: Exact times 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.
