I-285 Advanced Improvement Projects Moving Forward
Public Meetings Cover 3 Vital I-285 Projects
The Major Mobility Investment Program (MMIP) will build a better Georgia through enhanced mobility and safety, fueling economic growth, and improving quality of life. Six improvement projects along I-285 are being advanced. Three of the six I-285 Advanced Improvement Projects were recently featured at a series of Public Information Open Houses (PIOHs). Click here to provide comment about any one of the three projects. The comment period is open until 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, February 25, 2020.
These projects, which were already part of the MMIP, will provide local road improvements earlier, mitigate traffic challenges during the construction of the major express lanes’ projects, provide early operational improvements to the I-285 general purpose lanes, and maintain healthy competition among our construction developer partners.

Project Public Participation
Public Information Open Houses (PIOHs)
A series of Public Information Open Houses (PIOHs) for three of the I-285 Advanced Improvement Projects were recently held. The purpose of these meetings was to provide opportunities for the public to view current plans, ask questions, and provide feedback.
