The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) announced in a press release that it will install overnight lane closures on I-285 this weekend in Cobb and Fulton counties for an ongoing concrete slab rehabilitation project. 

If weather permits, starting at 10:00 p.m. Friday, October 25, single lane closures will be installed, at 11:00 p.m.  double lane closures will be installed.

The press release states:

These are the scheduled double lane closures on I-285 this weekend beginning 11:00 p.m. on Friday, October 25 until 5:00 a.m. on Monday:  

  • Two right lanes will be closed on I-285 southbound between Atlanta Road and DL Hollowell Parkway;  
  • Two right lanes will be closed on I-285 northbound between D L Hollowell and Cobb Parkway; and
  • “Rolling” lane closures throughout the project area for hydro-blasting. As crews complete work in one area, the closures will “roll” to the next location.

This project will rehabilitate approximately 17 miles of concrete on I-285 from SR 14 /S Fulton Parkway in Fulton County to Paces Ferry Road in Cobb County. Drivers are encouraged to plan for additional travel time, use alternate travel modes or find alternate travel routes. Message boards, signage and barrels will alert drivers of the closures in advance.
