Construction is ramping up at the Interstate 985 split with I-85, and will lead to northbound closures next week.

The Georgia Department of Transportation said Friday all northbound traffic from I-85 to I-985 will be diverted from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Tuesday through Friday. Crews are installing bridge beams in the area as part of the highway upgrade.

Northbound traffic will be diverted to Buford Drive/Ga. 20, exit 115 on I-85. From there, motorists can head west to the Buford exit of I-985.

Southbound traffic on I-985 won't be affected by this round of work, the DOT said.
