Work on Georgia 400 continues this week.

Over the weekend, crews for the Georgia Department of Transportation shifted threenorth and southbound lanes of the former toll road into their new configuration now that the toll plazas are gone.

“Traffic in both directions now travels on the three inside (left) lanes – the area formerly utilized by vehicles with Cruise Cards,” GDOT says.

But there’s still work left. There will be final paving and striping that will require lane closures throughout the week.

All closures will occur between 10 pm and 5 am. On the schedule:

– Monday night, a single southbound right lane closure.

– Tuesday night, double southbound left lane closures switching to double southbound right lane closures.

– Wednesday night, a single northbound right lane closure.

– Thursday and Friday nights, double northbound left lane closures switching to double northbound right lane closures.

But wait, there’s more.

North of that project on GA 400, at the Northridge Road interchange, workers will prepare to switch traffic on Northridge next weekend to a recently-finished part of a new bridge being built over GA 400. Starting tonight, Sept. 8, between 10 pm and 5 am, and continuing for the next three nights and possibly longer, workers will pave the Northridge ramps to and from GA 400. It will require periodic pacing of traffic by Sandy Springs Police, GDOT says.

“Motorists are requested to please slow down and exercise caution in these work areas,” GDOT says.
