The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is seeking public input on the I-285 Westside Express Lanes project.  This project will add one optional, buffer-separated express lane in each direction on I-285 between Paces Ferry Road in Cobb County and just north of I-20 in Fulton County, connecting to the Northwest Corridor Express Lanes and future I-285 Top End West Express Lanes as part of the Georgia Express Lanes Network.

With the ongoing health concerns related to COVID-19, GDOT is conducting a virtual Public Information Open House (PIOH) for this project. The online platform and interactive virtual meeting room house the same project information that you would find at an in-person PIOH. 

Enter the Virtual PIOH

In addition, GDOT will host one live virtual presentation and Q&A session on February 11, 2021 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Attend Live Virtual Session

The deadline for public comments is Monday, February 22. All comments will be made part of the project's official record and will be responded to within 60 days of the close of the comment period.
