Ferrovial Construction, one of the world’s leading infrastructure firms, has been selected by the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) as the Best Value Proposer for the I-85 at SR 42/North Druid Hills Road Project in Atlanta, Georgia.
Construction is scheduled to begin late 2023, with substantial completion estimated by August 2025.
The $79-million design-build improvement project will help reduce crash frequency and congestion at the intersection of I-85 at SR 42/North Druid Hills Road, as well as replace an aging bridge over Peachtree Creek in DeKalb County. Ferrovial Construction is currently managing the Transform 285/400 highway improvement project in Atlanta.
“We appreciate GDOT's continued confidence in our team and our ability to improve safety and traffic flow along critical mobility corridors in Atlanta. We are committed to our partnership with GDOT and to bringing much-needed congestion relief and safer roadways to the traveling public in one of the busiest metropolitan areas in the U.S.”
The project scope includes:
- Adding a displaced left-turn interchange for westbound to southbound movement
- Constructing an additional structure over I-85
- Constructing a braided ramp from the I-85 northbound (NB) off-ramp to I-85 NB access road
- Replacing the bridge on SR 42/North Druid Hills Road over Peachtree Creek
