The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) and its partners rose to the challenge to restore mobility on Atlanta's busy Interstate 85 viaduct, a vital north-south corridor, following a fire on March 30, 2017. The fire damaged a portion of the bridge and forced its closure. GDOT partnered with a local contractor to demolish, retrofit, and rebuild the segment in an unprecedented 43 days. For more information, see "Partnering in a Crisis" on page 12 in this issue of PUBLIC ROADS.
