Speed limit to increase on Interstate 285

Interstate 285 Interstate 285

If you've been waiting for the speed limit to increase on Interstate 285 in metro Atlanta, you won't have to wait much longer, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.

GDOT has opened up bidding for contractors to make the necessary changes to increase the speed limit from 55 to 65 mph.

The southern portion of the perimeter (south of Interstate 20) will be set at a static 65 mph.

The northern portion of the perimeter (north of Interstate 20) will have variable speed limit based on traffic congestion, but with a maximum speed limit of 65 mph.

The speed limit changes should be in place by some time in 2013. GDOT did not have a specific date because the change depends on when the contractor completes the needed changes.
