Georgia Department of Transportation 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 counties.

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