Description: After a March 30 fire in a GA DOT temporary storage facility beneath a portion of Interstate 85 in the Buckhead section of Atlanta, this major artery was severed by a bridge collapse that day. By April 2, GA DOT engineers had provided plans for redesigned beams to fabricators to get this emergency repair of 700 feet of elevated interstate roadway underway (350 feet long and four lanes wide in both the northbound and southbound directions). The original bridges were built in 1984, and were of a different design then prevalent. The project was completed in 45 days.

Comments: Design was done internally by GA DOT. Contractor was picked, on an emergency basis, without competition through an IFB. 90% of the costs of the repair are expected to be reimbursed to GA DOT by the US DOT.
