This week crews for the Georgia Department of Transportation will begin restriping and installing raised pavement markers on I-75 and the downtown connector.

The work begins Monday, June 22. Crews will be working overnight from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. and on weekends.

“Georgia DOT contractors will start restriping and installing RPMs on I-75 from SR 3/US 41/ Northside Drive to University Avenue,” the announcement from GDOT says.

“Restriping the Downtown Connector is a major improvement to one of Metro Atlanta’s thoroughfares,” Kathy Zahul, Metro District Engineer, said in a press release. “The new striping will increase safety and improve visibility at night and during inclement weather.”

There will also be upgrade work on interstate shield signs on the connector and on I-285 at the Tom Moreland Interchange. GDOT says the striping project is among the items on the to-do list as part of $6.7 million in sign upgrades.

“Motorists should expect slow-moving equipment and rolling lane closures,” the announcement from GDOT says. “Motorists are advised to exercise caution while driving through the work zone.”
