Georgia DOT and Cobb County will temporarily close the I-75 HOV ramp to the Akers Mill Road exit and the Akers Mill Road Bridge at I-75 in Cobb County on Thursday.

These temporary closures are related to the imminent start of the I-75 at Akers Mill Road New Express Lanes Access Ramps construction project, which will provide new access to the I-75/I-575 Northwest Corridor from Akers Mill Road.

During this closure, the general purpose ramp from I-75 to Akers Mill Road will remain open to traffic.

The Akers Mill Road Bridge at I-75 from Overton Park Drive to Cobb Galleria Parkway will be closed to traffic in phases:

  • From 6 to 8 a.m. three lanes closed, one westbound lane remains open.
  • From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. full closure of all bridge lanes.

On-site message boards will alert approaching drivers of these closures in advance and provide detours/alternate routes through the area. Cobb County police will slow traffic for safety during these temporary closures.
