NORTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — If you’re planning on using I-285 over the next few days, you may want to prepare yourself for travel times to increase.

“Hopefully, eventually, it will decrease the amount of traffic when they finish this construction,” driver Aidan Schettino told Channel 2′s Christian Jennings.

The Georgia Department of Transportation has shut down the I-285 westbound offramp to Roswell Road. It will not reopen until 5 a.m. on Monday morning. The eastbound ramp is still open.

“You still have to get to point A, point B. The side roads will be bad too, Roswell and Abernathy, but I guess we will have to deal with it,” business owner Chris Deetanna said.

Also on I-285 westbound, big changes are in store for the Peachtree-Dunwoody Rd. exit, which means more delays there too.

“Peachtree-Dunwoody Road will shut down for the weekend. That’s all in anticipation in preparation for a brand new exit point,” Kyle Collins with the Georgia Department of Transportation told Jennings.

Collins added that starting Sunday, there will be a new exit location at Peachtree-Dunwoody Rd.

“As a driver, you’re going to have to think ahead. I know we’re always asking you to do that and be alert and think ahead, but you’re actually going to have to exit once this is finalized,” he said.
