Overnight express lanes bridge work to delay drivers

Overnight drivers will have as much of a headache with their commute this week as back-to-school drivers will.

Drivers can expect double right-lane closures on I-75 southbound between Windy Ridge Parkway and Akers Mill Road from 10 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday.

The closures are part of the Northwest Corridor express lanes project bridge work.

In addition, the I-75 southbound ramp to the I-285 eastbound ramp, or exit No. 259A, will be closed. But not to worry. There will be a detour in place for those exiting at 259A.

Drivers traveling I-285 eastbound from I-75 southbound will redirect to take the I-75 southbound ramp, or exit No. 258, to Cumberland Boulevard.

Drivers will turn left on Cumberland Boulevard and then make another left to the I-75 northbound ramp to access I-285 eastbound.

If it rains, the closures will take place from 10 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday.
