May 8, 2017 I-85 Rebuild Update: David England, Vice President, Industrial Engineering

Loyal Customer,

Today’s update brings some really good news. We learned last week that State officials expect to reopen I-85 before May 26. This is several weeks ahead of their original schedule of June 15.

The timing before Memorial Day weekend could not be better as the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) announced a new timeline, bringing relief for hundreds of thousands of us on Atlanta’s roads. This is great news for our customers and the City of Atlanta.

Courier Express is continuing to over communicate to our impacted customers and over contract independent contractors for our local deliveries. Focusing on these two important aspects within our control has been vital to keeping our goal of delivering exceptional service, despite adverse circumstances.

From an engineering standpoint and because roadways are vital to our business, we continue to have traffic update meetings with our On-Call and Scheduled Courier Express teams. We are working every day to find new solutions and expedite your shipments as the road and route conditions change constantly.

As you may know, Georgia’s Department of Transportation is overseeing the buildout of 350 feet of I-85 in each direction. The project is expected to cost up to $16.6 million with the federal government paying 90 percent of the cost.

We wanted to provide the GDOT link to monitor roadway conditions through I-85’s re-opening: www.dot.ga.gov/ds; updates on routing options, new alternates, and construction progress: www.dot.ga.gov; and real-time traffic conditions: www.511ga.org.

Thank you for your continued trust in Courier Express. We remain committed to you.

Regards,
David England,
Vice President, Industrial Engineering
