Transform  285/400 PROJECT:

 Transform 285/400 Nov17 2017

Crews will implement daily closures on the southbound SR 400 flexible shoulder lanes between the MARTA North Springs station ramp and Pitts Road, daily between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Near-term closures will facilitate tree clearing efforts and utility relocations in preparation for interchange reconstruction.

Traffic pacing will periodically occur on the I-285 eastbound and westbound on-ramps to SR 400, both northbound and southbound, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to assist crews with tree clearing and landscape prep activities. Pacing may require the ramp lane width to be reduced to allow construction vehicles to enter and exit the work zone.


Note: all dates are subject to change 


Five Things You Need to Know:

  1. Contractors will widen Mount Vernon Highway bridge from two to four lanes.
  2. The new lanes on the north side will be built alongside the existing bridge. Later, traffic will shift to the new bridge and the southern side of the bridge will be constructed.
  3. A new median will separate the lanes on Mount Vernon Highway from Barfield Road to Crestline Parkway.
  4. The bridge will remain open with periodic daytime and nighttime closures on Mount Vernon Highway and SR 400.
  5. Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout construction and the new bridge will have 10-foot wide sidewalks on each side and five-foot-wide bike lanes.
