I – 85/GA 400 Interchange Ramps and North Fork Creekside Trail
This design-build project completes the system-to-system interchange of GA 400 with I-85 in Atlanta. Originally built in the 1990s, the interchange was not complete in that certain merging and exit ramps were not included. The new ramps provide I-85 southbound traffic with direct access to GA 400 northbound and also give GA 400 southbound motorists a direct ramp to I-85 northbound. After receiving local public feedback, GDOT included design and construction of a nature trail along the forested right of way adjacent to the interchange. This is the first nature trail designed by GDOT.
