Portions of Interstate 985 will be closed 7 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. on the nights of June 13-14 and running through the next mornings and the nights of June 17-20 through the following mornings as bridge beams are placed over the interstate at the new Exit 14.

One lane will be closed each night and traffic paced between Mundy Mill Road/Ga. 53 and Spout Springs Road.

The schedule is as follows:

  • Starting nights of June 13-14: Southbound right lane closing

  • Starting nights of June 17-18: Southbound left lane closing

  • Starting nights of June 19-20: Northbound right lane closing

Work started in late 2017 on the $34 million project. The project calls for a diamond interchange connecting Martin Road at Falcon Parkway/Ga. 13 on the east side of I-985 to H.F. Reed Industrial Parkway at Thurmon Tanner Parkway on the west side.
