Traf­fic pac­ing on I-85 to up­grade util­ity lines

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY - KAREN HUPPERTZ FOR THE AJC

As­sum­ing good weather, con­trac­tors for Ge­or­gia Trans­mis­sion Cor­po­ra­tion will pull util­ity lines across all lanes on I-85 north­bound and south­bound be­tween Jimmy Carter Boule­vard and In­dian Trail Road be­tween 7:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Oct. 14 and 15. The work, part of a crit­i­cal elec­tric in­fra­struc­ture up­grade, will re­quire au­thor­i­ties to pace traf­fic on I-85 for brief pe­ri­ods, caus­ing motorists to drive at a sig­nif­i­cantly re­duced speed so that crews may safely per­form the work.

All south­bound and north­bound lanes of I-85 be­tween Jimmy Carter Boule­vard and the In­dian Trail Road will be af­fected. Ac­cess ramps from these ex­its will be closed dur­ing the traf­fic pac­ing.

Lo­cal law en­force­ment will help pace traf­fic. Motorists should ex­pect de­lays and seek al­ter­nate routes. Call 511, visit 511ga.org or down­load the Ge­or­gia 511 app for real-time in­for­ma­tion on work sta­tus and traf­fic con­di­tions.
