If you’ve been wondering about something in your community, Ask The Times is your place to get answers. The following question was submitted by a reader and answered through the efforts of our news staff.

Can someone please explain to me why 985 doesn’t have reflectors?

An Interstate 985 resurfacing project to include replacement of roadway reflectors is set to begin Feb. 25, Georgia Department of Transportation district spokeswoman Katie Strickland said.

She said the work will be done nightly, starting at 7 p.m. and going until 6 a.m., Sundays through Fridays.

Strickland also said that the project, which was awarded to a contractor in September 2018, “will be done in stages and will be completed by the end of the summer.”

Last fall, the DOT announced that would construction crews would begin $9.5 million worth of road improvements, starting in mid-February, replacing pavement markings and smoothing areas where previous slab replacements were made.

The work will feel like adding a new “fresh coat of paint,” the DOT said.
