Blasting Along I-285 Requires Traffic Pacing for the
Transform 285/400 Project 
Georgia Department of Transportation construction partners will pace traffic on I-285 eastbound and westbound and stop traffic on Glenridge Drive for the controlled blasting of rock. The blasting will take place along I-285 eastbound from Roswell Road to Glenridge Drive during the day starting Monday, May 4, through Friday, May 8, from 1:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. The blasting is necessary to allow contractors to begin constructing a collector-distributor (CD) lane.

Traffic pacing will occur at the following locations:
  • I-285 eastbound at Riverside Drive. 
  • I-285 westbound at Ashford Dunwoody Road. 
  • SR 400 southbound ramp to I-285 westbound at Hammond Drive.
  • SR 400 northbound ramp to I-285 westbound at Johnson Ferry Road.
Traffic will be stopped at the locations below:
  • Glenridge Drive northbound and southbound at the on-ramp to I-285 westbound.
  • Glenridge Drive northbound at Johnson Ferry Road.
  • Roswell Road on-ramp to I-285 eastbound.
