I-85 Bridge Collapse Reconstruction

Atlanta, Georgia

A massive fire collapsed a bridge on Interstate 85 in Atlanta. After the 92-foot-long section collapsed, I-85 was closed to traffic for approximately two miles (3.2 km) between its split with I-75 and the interchange with State Route 400 (SR 400). Three sections of northbound I-85 and three sections of southbound I-85 were replaced in 43 days at a cost of $15 million.
