Motorists are requested to consider using alternate routes, adjust arrival/departure times, observe work zone speed limits and other work zone signs, and use extreme caution in this area.

A work zone speed limit of 45 mph is in effect. 

The $8.4 million interchange improvement project on I-85 at Perry Hill Road (Exit 4) will include bridge widening, additional lanes and new traffic signals. The project, which began in March, is estimated to be completed by November 2014.
