GDOT Announces Nightly Lane Closures on I-20 as Resurfacing Project Continues.



Weather permitting, the Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) contractors will temporarily close interstate lanes at the locations below for construction activities within the I-285/I-20 East Interchange project limits.  

The project will improve traffic flow and safety at the busy interchange by reconstructing the interstate system-to-system ramps at the I-285/I-20 East Interchange and adding a combination of connecting lanes and auxiliary lanes along I-20 east of the interchange. For daily traffic impacts and real-time traffic alerts, please visit Georgia NaviGAtor at


Overnight closures:

Friday, June 9th, 9 p.m. through Monday, June 12th, 5 a.m. (Daily/Nightly/Continuous)

  • (Exit 74) Evans Mill Ramp/ Lithonia Industrial - Single outside lane and shoulder closure 
  • (Exit 75) Turner Hill Ramp - Single outside lane and shoulder closure as the paver approaches them for Milling & Resurfacing.

Lane closures help ensure safety for workers and drivers through the project area as crews continue milling, inlay and resurfacing to improve the deteriorating roadway.

Advisory: Exact times may change due to weather conditions. There may be intermittent traffic pacing and lane and ramp closures that occur within the work zone in addition to this notice. Motorists are advised to expect delays, exercise caution, reduce their speed while traveling through work zones, stay alert, and watch for workers. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. Call 511, visit, or download the Georgia 511 app.
