GOOD NEWS FOR ATLANTA COMMUTERS...EVENTUALLY  

Next year, the Georgia Department of Transportation begins a 3-year rework of the Interstate 285/Georgia 400 interchange. It promises to relieve congestion along one of the nation’s worst bottlenecks.

This is one of the most dangerous and frustrating sections of any northsider's commute.  Whether you are heading downtown for your daily commute, to the airport headed out of town, or making your way to the Interstates (75 or 85), you have to run the gauntlet of this crazy exchange.

New flyover ramps, new collector-distributor lanes and other facilities to aid east-west travel on along I-285 and north-south travel along SR 400 would be constructed.

It appears that their goal is to get rid of the left lane merges from I-285 that consistently freak out drivers traveling on GA 400 and also to have 4 lanes of traffic exiting from GA 400 to I-285 (adding an additional lane for each exit).  

Here's a short video of the proposed changes:
