Labor Day Lane Closures!!

Connector Labor Day Lane Closures

Georgia DOT will continue work on the 14th Street Bridge Improvement project during the Labor Day holiday weekend.  Multiple lane closures will be in place; anticipate significant delays on I-75/I-85 (the Downtown Connector) southbound throughout the weekend. North of the Brookwood Split,     I-85 SB will be reduced to two lanes and I-75 SB to one lane.  Six lanes will be open south of 10th Street.

Normally, Georgia DOT suspends holiday weekend work; however, this complex phase can be completed in 72 continuous work hours.  The alternative is to have these same lane closures for six consecutive two-day weekends. (In the event of inclement weather on Labor Day weekend, the lane reductions will take place the following six weekends.)    

Georgia DOT encourages north-to-sound end travelers to utilize I-285. Area residents heading for events Downtown are encouraged to use I-285 and I-20, or take MARTA. Visit for more project information. Dial 511 from your cellular phones for traffic updates.  

 We thank you in advance for your help. Please feel free to contact me for additional information if needed.
