Rejoice, commuters: No more traffic light at the Loop, Peter Street and Olympic Drive. A new interchange at what’s now known as Exit 9 is open, six weeks ahead of schedule.
There’s still a bit of work to be done, so GDOT officials are urging caution, but the inner Loop ramps officially opened at 11:15 a.m. The outer Loop ramps opened Jan. 20.
E.R. Snell Contracting of Snellville built the $14.5 million project.
