Expect traffic delays in the nighttime and early morning hours along Interstate 985 this week as the Georgia Department of Transportation works on the Exit 14 interchange.

According to a DOT press release, the I-985 northbound traffic detour will continue between 8 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. from Sunday, June 23, to Friday, June 28, for continued the “hydro-blasting” operations.

Southbound traffic, meanwhile, will be met with a left lane closure between 7 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. Sunday, June 23, to Friday, June 28.

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.
