Alternative Travel Directions

We recommend allow an hour of extra time to get through the detours and the extra traffic from the collapsed bridge.

For those staying Inside the Perimeter:

  1. Peachtree Street/Road— From Midtown, take Peachtree Street across I-85 and into Buckhead. From Peachtree Road, you will be able to access many of the east-west connector streets to get to your destination, or back to Georgia Highway 400 or I-85 to continue north.
  2. Cheshire Bridge Road— While Piedmont Road is closed, take Cheshire Bridge Road north under I-85, where it becomes Lenox Road. From Lenox, you can access Buford Highway or head into the heart of Buckhead.
  3. Lindbergh Drive— Another option for those on the eastern side of Midtown or Buckhead is to take Lindbergh Drive to Piedmont Road, north of I-85. From Piedmont, you can access Buckhead.
  4. Buford-Spring Connector— While currently closed for inspection, hopefully the four-lane Buford-Spring Connector (which was originally the I-85 corridor for the first few decades of the interstate system) will be reopened to allow a direct detour around the collapse.
  5. Piedmont Road— The road will likely be closed for some time, but will hopefully reopen to allow motorists to travel between Buckhead and Midtown as the bridge above is reconstructed.

  1. Georgia 400 South to Sidney Marcus Blvd — For those starting their journey North of the city, one option is to take 400 to Sidney Marcus Blvd. and turn left off the exit.
