Do Not Take I-285 This Weekend

Unless you just love sitting in stand-still traffic, avoid Interstate 285 at all costs.

For several weekends, the repaving project of Interstate 285 has called for serious lane closures which means serious traffic jams. This weekend is no different.

The Georgia Department of Transportation's $56 million repaving project covers the northwestern part of 285, between Ashford Dunwoody Road and Paces Ferry Road in Cobb County.

The official completion date of the project is August 2013.

The construction can begin from 9 p.m. on Fridays and continue until 5 a.m. on Mondays.

Get all the updates and details about the project at Georgia-Navigator.com or call 511. Check the color-coded highway congestion maps online.

There will be red and there will be painful traffic jams.

It's best to avoid 285 this weekend, and most likely for weekends to come.
