The state has selected a contractor team to reconstruct the I-285/Ga. 400 interchange, reports.

The selection of North Perimeter Contractors is a key step in moving ahead with the major roadway project slated to begin by early 2017 and finish in 2020. The project will rebuild and add lanes to the massive interchange, which is known as among the busiest and most accident-prone in the state.
