Welcome to the revive285 top end website!

 It’s no secret that the top end of Atlanta’s perimeter I-285 is one of the most congested routes in the city. After several years of study and evaluation, the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) and the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA) have developed several options for improving traffic through this vital route.

Explore the site to learn more about: 

  • The revive285 top end project history;

  • The final four alternatives under consideration; and

  • Next steps in the process leading up to Draft Environmental Impact Statement.

Currently, the project team is in the final stages of completing all the refinements to each alternative and documenting the NEPA process in preparation for the release of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for public and agency review and comment.
