Review 285

The I-285 Top End Express Lanes is a major Georgia DOT project planned to improve mobility along the I-285 top end in metro Atlanta, one of the most heavily traveled and congested interstate highways in America. More than 240,000 vehicles travel across this stretch of highway every weekday. The project focuses on adding two new elevated, barrier-separated express lanes in both directions of I-285, alongside the existing general purpose lanes.
