There will be daytime lane closures on I-285 in Cobb County and Fulton County this weekend, according to a press release from the Georgia Department of Transportation.

Here is the announcement of the times and locations of the closures:

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) contractors will install daytime lane closures on I-285 this weekend to continue a concrete slab rehabilitation project on 17 miles of I-285 from SR 14 /S. Fulton Parkway in Fulton County to Paces Ferry Road in Cobb County.

  • On Saturday, August 1:
    •  Two right lanes will be closed on I-285 southbound between Paces Ferry Road and South Cobb Parkway, and
    • Two right lanes will be closed on I-285 northbound from Campbellton Road to Cascade Road or from Cascade Road to I-20.
  • On Sunday, August 2:
    •  Two right lanes will be closed on I-285 southbound from S. Atlanta Road to the Chattahoochee River; and
    • Two right lanes will be closed on I-285 northbound between Cascade Road and I-20.

Drivers are encouraged to plan for additional travel time, use alternate travel modes or find alternate travel routes. Lane closures are needed to keep work crews and drivers safe as the concrete slab rehabilitation activities continue, often with large equipment on-site. This work is designed to improve the roadway’s surface condition.  Message boards, signage and barrels will alert drivers of the closures in advance.
 
As always, motorists traveling in the area are reminded to reduce their speeds in the work zone. Motorists are also encouraged to wear seatbelts, eliminate distractions behind the wheel, and plan their routes before getting on the road by calling 511 for real-time information on work status and traffic conditions.
