April 26, 2017 I-85 Rebuild Update: Py Stills, Area Manager, Mid-South Region

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) remains committed to re-opening the I-85 bridge, our important transportation artery, by June 15, 2017.

In an ongoing effort to keep you informed, here is our third Courier Express update in a continuing series of messages. Please visit www.courierexpress.net for all communications on this topic.

Currently, we are over communicating to our impacted customers and over contracting independent contractors for our local deliveries. While many parts of this project are out of our control, these two important pieces are something we can impact. And we are committed in both of these vital areas.

Delivering exceptional service to our customers remains our priority. Courier Express understands business is still in motion and freight is still flowing as our state and local authorities work around-the-clock to rebuild the closed northbound and southbound portions of I-85 in the City of Atlanta. Fortunately, this interstate segment of I-85 is not a regional thru-truck route. The major truck interstate route around Metro Atlanta, I-285, remains open for business as usual but with a heavier increase in traffic.

GDOT is constantly monitoring roadway conditions through I-85's re-opening, and when there are adjustments, you can find them at www.dot.ga.gov/ds. GDOT is regularly posting updates on routing options, new alternates, and construction progress at www.dot.ga.gov. For real-time traffic conditions, please visit http://www.511ga.org.

We have the best team around and we remain committed to delivering excellence even in adverse conditions.

Sincerely,
Py Stills,
Area Manager, Mid-South Region
