Georgia Department of Transportation Holds Groundbreaking Ceremony for New Diverging Diamond Interchange

Georgia DOT held a ceremonial groundbreaking for the I-285 at Camp Creek Parkway Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) project, the seventh in Georgia, on Thursday, August 23, 2018 at the Aerotropolis Atlanta CIDs headquarters in Atlanta. Georgia DOT State Transportation Board Member Dana Lemon, Congressional District 13, and State Transportation Board Member Stacey Key, Congressional District 5, were among those in attendance along with local officials.

The $12.3 million diverging diamond interchange project will utilize the existing bridge structure and widen it seven feet to provide a total width of just over 100 feet. The bridge will be raised to meet vertical clearance requirements. Once complete, the DDI will consist of six 13-foot lanes; an 11-foot barrier separated pedestrian walkway down the middle of the bridge; and two-foot shoulders on the inside and outside of the bridge.

Completion Date: Late 2019
