Senate votes to end government shutdown, bill moves to House for approval

A Cobb I-75 ramp onto I-285 will be closed overnight into Saturday


Overnight into Saturday morning, you won’t be able to easily get onto I-285 heading west if you’re driving north on I-75 in Cobb County.

The closures where those interstates meet are due to the bridge construction for the Northwest Corridor Express Lanes project, said the Georgia Department of Transportation.

To get where you’re going: Take exit No. 260 for Windy Hill Road, turn left onto Windy Hill, then left again onto the entrance ramp to continue.

The rerouting will last from 9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Saturday.

There was a closure in the area last weekend.
