I-285 Eastside Express Lanes

To improve mobility on I-285, Georgia DOT plans to add new, optional express lanes consisting of one new buffer-separated express lane in each direction on I-285 between I-20 and Henderson Road in DeKalb County. The I-285 Eastside Express Lanes will be part of the larger Georgia Express Lanes system.

Public Information Open Houses

In June 2019, Georgia DOT hosted a series of Public Information Open Houses (PIOH) to present the project to the public, answer questions and receive comments.
