The Georgia Department of Transportation is resuming roadwork today, but taking it easy during the first weekend of the New Year.
The to-do list:
– Bridge joint repairs will require two westbound I-20 lanes between McDaniel and Langhorn streets be closed continuously from 9 pm, Friday, until 5 am, Monday;
– And one right lane and one left lane will be closed on Lucile Avenue continuously from 9 pm, Saturday until 5 am, Thursday.
There will also be roadwork in the evenings during the first week of the year, Jan. 5 through Jan. 9. The list of projects includes:
– Two lane closures on both the inner and outer loop between South Cobb Dr. to Paces Ferry Rd. from 9 pm, Monday, until 5 am, Tuesday;
– The on-ramp to access I-285 northbound from Atlanta Road will close, along with two northbound lanes from Atlanta Rd. to Paces Ferry Rd. from 9 pm, Tuesday, until 5 am, Wednesday. Drivers can use Cumberland Parkway to access I-285 northbound.
– Two northbound lanes on I-285 will close between Atlanta Rd. to Paces Ferry Rd. at 9 pm, Wednesday until 5 am, Thursday;
– The same lanes will close 9 pm, Thursday until 5 am, Friday and again at 9 pm, Friday until 5 am, Saturday.
There’s another lane closure on Monday night in Cobb County.
GDOT says, “A new entrance ramp from Wade Green Road to northbound I-75 will be placed in use on Tuesday morning, Jan. 6, 2015. The new ramp will be located closer to I-75 and will be approximately ¾ of a mile shorter in length… To prepare the roadways for the ramp opening, it will be necessary to close the outside (right) shoulder and one lane of I-75 northbound through the interchange area overnight Monday.”
GDOT will close the northbound entrance ramp from Wade Green Road to I-75 in Cobb County. The closure will last from 9 pm Monday, Jan. 5 to 5 am Tuesday, Jan. 6.
“Motorists utilizing the new ramp are advised to be especially mindful of the shorter ramp distance; to proceed cautiously; and to be particularly aware of mainline I-75 traffic as they merge,” GDOT says.
