Workers and heavy equipment will be in close proximity to
the I-85 SB roadway. Motorists are requested to avoid the area if at all
possible and to drive slowly, exercising extreme caution in this work zone. - Hunt Archbold
Two lanes of Interstate 85 South just north of Clairmont Road will be closed at least until Tuesday while transportation crews work on emergency repairs to the road.
The HOV lane and lane next to it will remain closed possibly longer than Tuesday while GDOT crews work to repair a failed drainage structure, according to GDOT.
Repair crews will work around the clock to fix the road. However, motorists may want to take alternate routes for their Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning commutes.
