This project will modify the existing interchange at I-285 and Atlanta Road by replacing the twin bridges with a wider and longer bridge. Bike lanes and turn lanes will be added on Atlanta Road in both directions to improve the flow of traffic.
Additionally, an auxiliary lane will be added to I-285 in each direction between Atlanta Road and Paces Ferry Road. A new bridge for Orchard Road over I-285 will be built. Noise walls along I- 285 also will be constructed.
Construction began in May 2014, and completion in expected in September 2017.
Orchard Road is closed to through traffic through January 5, 2017.
