The Georgia Department of Transportation announced in a press release that due to preservation work on eight bridges lanes will be closed on I-285 between South Atlanta Road and Bolton Road over the weekend.

The GDOT describes the work as follows:

Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) contractors will implement lane closures on I-285 southbound in Cobb and Fulton counties each night this weekend to continue bridge preservation activities. This project includes preservation of eight bridges on I-285 in the two counties.

Weather permitting, two right lanes will be closed on I-285 southbound between South Atlanta Road and Bolton Road beginning 9:00 p.m. on Friday, August 14 through 5:00 a.m. on Monday, August 17.    

These closures will provide safety for workers and drivers as crews conduct bridge joint replacements and apply co-polymer overlay to the interstate bridge structures. Motorists will be alerted of the upcoming traffic impacts by message boards and barricades in advance of approaching the area.
