CONSTRUCTION ALERT: Significant Delays on I-75

Expect Significant Delays: Bridge Work for NWC Express Lanes Requires Multiple Lane Closures and Night Time Ramp Detour at the I-75/I-285 Interchange

WHAT:          Weather permitting, day time and night time lane closures as well as a night time detour will take place for bridge construction within the NWC project corridor at the I-75/ I-285 Interchange:  Expect significant delays and avoid this area, if possible, as I-75 Northbound and I-75 Southbound will experience both day time and night time lane closures.

WHEN:          Beginning Friday, April 15th at 10:00 p.m. through Monday, April 18th at 5:00 a.m.

WHERE:      

Friday, April 15th

I-75 Northbound Impacts:

                        Night time Lane Closures: Triple left lane closures on I-75 Northbound near I-285 between the hours of 10 p.m. – 5 a.m.

I-75 Southbound Impacts:

                        Night time Lane Closures: Double right lane closures on I-75 Southbound, including the ramp lane. The I-75 Southbound to I-285 Eastbound ramp (Exit 259A) will be closed (see detour information below). Closures will occur between the hours of 10 p.m. – 5 a.m.

                        Detour: Night time only: the I-75 Southbound ramp to I-285 Eastbound Collector Lanes (Exit-259A) will be closed between the hours of 10 p.m. – 5 a.m. Traffic will need to take the primary ramp (Exit-259) to access I-285 Eastbound from I-75 Southbound.

                        I-75 Night time Traffic Pacing: Both I-75 Southbound and I-75 Northbound lanes will experience intermittent traffic pacing between the hours of 10 p.m. – 5 a.m.  This will consist of police and project vehicles slowing the pace of traffic in order to have bridge beams safely placed over the interstate.
