The Georgia Department of Transportation has announced the latest round of lane closures and other traffic changes for Transform 285/400, its massive project to reconstruct the I-285/Ga. 400 interchange.

Ga. 400 lane closures

Dec. 18-22: Northbound between North Springs MARTA Station and Pitts Road, one right flex lane/shoulder, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Dec. 18-22: Southbound between Pitts Road and North Springs MARTA Station, one right flex lane/shoulder, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Other traffic changes

I-285 eastbound and westbound ramps to Ga. 400 will have intermittent “traffic pacing,” meaning that police cars will force other vehicles to temporarily slow or stop. That is for tree-clearing and landscape preparation. Hours: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Ga. 400 flex lanes — where the shoulder of the road is used as an extra travel lane during commuting hours — will be closed intermittently daily between Pitts Road and the North Springs MARTA Station ramp. That is for tree-clearing and utility relocation work. Hours: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
