Express Lane closes planned in next weekend
ATLANTA - During the weekend of October 26-28, motorists should prepare for possible traffic disruptions and delays due to southbound and northbound I-85 Express Lane closures.
The Georgia Road & Tollway Authority says the closures, which will begin on I-85 near Duluth Highway/SR 120, will be necessary because of construction for a permanent southbound Express Lane access point near the Boggs Road overpass. The permanent access point will replace the temporary entry point installed in January 2012 to provide earlier Express Lane access between Old Peachtree and Indian Trail roads.
Planned closures are as follows:
8:00 p.m. Friday, October 26-5:00 a.m. Sunday, October 28
SB Express Lane closed beginning 1.09 miles north of Duluth Highway/State Route 120
NB Express Lane and next lane to the right closed beginning 1.09 miles south of Duluth Highway/State Route 120
During the weekend construction, the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) will begin installing foundations and mounting for permanent overhead directional and toll rate signage for the access point located about 3.5 miles south of the entry point near Old Peachtree Road and Sugarloaf Parkway. The permanent signage will replace the ground-mounted and changeable message signs currently displaying toll rates for the Express Lanes exit immediately after Boggs Road and the last exit in the 16-mile Express Lanes stretch.
