On Friday and Saturday, a new beam across the bridge section and above the existing stairs will be installed. That will prohibit the use of the stairs and elevator.

Customers will need to cross East Paces Ferry Road through the crosswalk at Oak Valley Road to access the lobby of the Atlanta Plaza and the elevators leading to the parking deck.
