Northwest Corridor

The Northwest Corridor project will improve travel in the I-75/I-575 corridor by adding 29.7 miles of express lanes along I-75 from Akers Mill Rd to Hickory Grove Road and along I-575 from I-75 to Sixes Road. Two Express lanes will be built to the west of the existing lanes along I-75 between I-285 and I-575. From that interchange, one express lane will be added along I-75 north to Hickory Grove Road and one express lane will be added along I-575 to Sixes Road.

Selection of Private Sector Partner

On June 23, 2013, the State Board of Transportation (STB) Northwest Express Roadbuilders (NWER) voted to accept the Northwest Express Roadbuilders (NWER) a joint venture of Archer Western and Hubbard Construction as the apparent best value proposer and private sector partner for the Northwest Corridor project.

The project contract with NWER was executed in November 2013, and design and pre-construction activities are underway. Design and pre-construction activities were conducted leading up to the start of project construction. Construction on the Northwest Corridor Express Lanes broke ground in October 2014. The project is anticipated to open to traffic in summer of 2018. Below are links to documents and information related to the Northwest Corridor procurement process.
