The Georgia Department of Transportation is hosting an open house on Tuesday, Nov. 18, on its plan to construct collector/distributor lanes on Georgia State Route 400.  Gov. Nathan Deal has identified improvements to the crowded SR 400 corridor in North Fulton County, including the interchange with I-285, as a priority transportation infrastructure improvement project. The Georgia DOT is proposing about six miles of operational improvements along SR 400 and approximately 4.3 miles along I-285 in the vicinity of the interchange including:

  • Construction of barrier-separated collector-distributor lanes northbound and southbound along SR 400 from I-285 to Spalding Drive, as well as, eastbound and westbound along I-285 from Roswell Road to Ashford-Dunwoody Road
  • Reconstruction of existing ramps between the two
  • Building new flyover bridges and reconstructing and widening existing bridges in the interchange area
  • Construction of grade-separated, braided ramps (where one ramp crosses over another) in the vicinity of Ashford-Dunwoody Road and Roswell Road to eliminate conflicts between traffic entering and exiting GA 400 and traffic entering and exiting the Roswell Road and Ashford Dunwoody interchanges

The department is seeking public comments on the proposal.  The open houses will be from 11 a.m to 1 p.m and from 5 to 7 p.m. Both will be held in the Ministry Hall of St. Jude Catholic Church at 7171 Glenridge Drive, Sandy Springs.

Comments will be accepted at the open houses and written statements can be submitted until Dec. 4 to:
