ATLANTA - New flyover ramps on Interstate 85 are one step closer to making life a little easier for some commuters.
The ramps will help commuters on Ga. 400 get to I-85 and drivers heading south on I-85 get onto Ga. 400 northbound.
The Georgia Department of Transportation has not pinpointed an exact time, but said the ramps should be open in about a week.
The ramps are expected to help ease traffic on Buckhead surface streets like Sidney Marcus, Cheshire Bridge and Buford Highway.
“Think the projections say anywhere from 5,000 to 6,000 vehicles a day off those roadways that will be using those ramps. So, that’s a big deal,” GDOT spokesman Mark McKinnon said.
