Easier Ride for Sandy Springs Commuters as Interchange Construction Wraps up

The contractor for Georgia DOT plans to do a few more improvements at I-285 and Ashford Dunwoody before removing the orange barrels from the intersection.


The orange barrels are still hanging around the new diverging diamond interchange at I-285 and Ashford Dunwoody Road, but work there is expected to wrap up soon, according to officials with the Perimeter Community Improvement Districts.

The contractor is is expected to wash, paint and seal the bridge walls, and median walls Friday night and this weekend. Some lane closures will be a part of the work.

A fence will also be installed on both sides of the pedesterian bridge, which runs down the middle of the intersection.

A final paving of the new interchange is expected the first week of October from 9 p.m. to 5 p.m. All of the orange barrels are expected to be removed the second week of October.

The diverging diamond is a partnership project of the Perimeter Community Improvement Districts and the Georgia Department of Transportation.
