Sandy Springs commuters can use a new "slip lane" from Lake Hearn Drive to Ashford Dunwoody Road, in the Perimeter area, this week.
The new “slip lane” onto Lake Hearn Drive from the I-285 east bound off ramp to Ashford Dunwoody Road will re-open Tuesday, weather permitting. The lane is part of the ongoing realignment of the I-285 interchange in Dunwoody, according to officials with the Perimeter Community Improvement Districts.
The old “slip lane” was closed March 6 for construction of Georgia’s first Diverging Diamond Interchange.
“The new ‘slip lane’ replicates the access to major employers such as Auto Trader, Cox Communications and Crawford and Company just as it did before the lane was closed for DDI construction,” said David Purcell, chief operating officer of the PCIDs.
The ‘slip lane’ was paved during the weekend and the guardrail was scheduled to be installed Monday today, Purcell added.
