GAINESVILLE The Georgia Department of Transportation will be working night and day on Interstate 985 and Interstate 85 again next week in northeast Georgia, if weather permits. All work will require a lane closure.

This is a tentative schedule:

*985, WHAT & WHERE:

Interstate 985 northbound only in Hall County A contractor will remove damaged concrete and pour new concrete, closing the right lane of I-985 from SR 347, Exit 8 to Spout Springs Road, Exit 12. Work is scheduled to occur every night that weather allows for the next several weeks from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next morning.


I-85 northbound only in Jackson County A crew will be repairing the driving surface or bridge deck on three bridges on Interstate 85 northbound between SR 53/Exit 129 and SR 11/US 129/Exit 137.
