Temporary closures related to canopy construction
ATL officials will temporarily close portions of the North lower and upper roadways beginning Sunday night, September 17, 2017. The closures are necessary to facilitate ongoing construction of the massive canopies that will eventually span the North and South roadways at ATL.
At 9:00 p.m. Sunday, September 17, the North lower roadway will close; the roadway will reopen at 5:00 a.m. Monday, September 18. The inner upper roadway will remain open.
At 9:00 p.m. Monday, September 18, the North upper roadway will close; the roadway will reopen at 5:00 a.m. Tuesday, September 19. The lower roadway will remain open.
The roadways will remain open through the rest of the week.
Various traffic mitigation efforts are in place to ease potential congestion. Atlanta Police Officers will assist in traffic direction, and increased signage and messaging will inform the public about the temporary closures. Additionally, traffic enforcement officers will be on hand to ensure that guests are engaged in active loading and unloading only along the roadway. Vehicles and drivers will not be allowed to stand and wait for passengers.
Guests who utilize the North roadway should seek alternate options during this period. Those options include pick-ups or drop-offs at MARTA or the International Terminal.
