GDOT to hold hearings on major highway project

DUNWOODY, Ga. -- Members of the public are invited to attend one of several hearings about the Georgia Department of Transportation's plans to reconstruction the Interstate 285 and Georgia 400 interchange.

The proposed project would begin, on I-285, west of Roswell Road in Sandy Springs, and extend to east of Ashford Dunwoody Road in neighboring Dunwoody.

On Georgia 400, it would begin just south of the Glenridge Connector and extend north to the Hammond Drive interchange area.

Possible improvements to the roads include:

* Construction of barrier-separated lanes along I-285 and Ga. 400

* Reconstruction of existing ramps between the two highways

* Building new flyover bridges and reconstructing the existing ones

* Construction of braided ramps to eliminate conflicts between traffic entering and exiting Ga. 400

Those who would like to weigh in on the project may do so on Tuesday, Aug. 19 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.; and Thursday, Aug. 21 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., or 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

All three public sessions will be held at Dunwoody Baptist Church, 1445 Mt. Vernon Road.

Written comments can be submitted to State Environmental Administrator Hiral Patel at the Georgia Department of Transportation, 600 West Peachtree Street NW, 16th Floor, Atlanta, 30308.
