GDOT Commissioner warns of Summer Road Construction

In order to improve transportation here in Georgia there has to be improvements made to the current highway system. This summer GDOT is ramping up the construction. DOT Commissioner Russell McMurry states “our road conditions and roadway conditions have degraded to conditions that we’re not proud of.” The current projects underway or coming soon to improve the traffic and congestion are:
I-75/I-85: Crews will be repaving the Downtown Connector in Fulton County.
I-575/I-75: Expect construction to continue in Cobb and Cherokee Counties for the Northwest Corridor Express Lanes.
I-75: South of the city, in Henry and Clayton Counties, the Express Lane project there is more than half way complete.
I-285: There will be road work in several sections around The Perimeter in Cobb, Fulton and DeKalb Counties.
I-20: The Westside of I-20, in Douglas and Cobb Counties, will get some desperately needed repaving to repair the hundreds of potholes made worse by the wear and tear of tractor trailers.
I-85: Later this year Gwinnett County will see new HOT lanes, stretching from Old Peachtree Road, where they end now all the way up to Hamilton Mill Road in Buford.
GA-400: The widening has already begun between McFarland Parkway and SR-369 in Forsyth County.
