Expect overnight traffic to carry into your morning commute


Drivers along I-285 and Ga. 400 can expect overnight construction to delay their morning commute.

From 11 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday, one right lane will close at Roswell Road on-ramp to I-285 eastbound for work on the Transform 285/400 interchange project.

The project is part of the four-year, $800 million reconstruction of the interchange . Existing ramps and bridges will be redone and an access road will be created.

In addition to that lane closing, another right lane will close on I-285 eastbound between Roswell Road and Glenridge Drive from 11 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Friday.

Commuters can expect more delays off of Ashford-Dunwoody Road.

From 8 p.m. Thursday to midnight Friday, the right shoulder of the Ashford-Dunwoody on-ramp to I-285 westbound will close.

Dates of road work could change pending weather.

Motorists are urged to reduce their speeds when traveling in work zones and to watch for workers.

More detailed traffic information can be found on the Georgia Department of Transportation at 511ga.org .
