August 31, 2022 – New Turn Lane Changes from 85 Access at Armour Drive

Be aware of the new turn lane changes coming off the 85 Access ramp at Armour Drive. 

The left lane allows you to turn left onto Armour Drive, then go into the roundabout onto Monroe toward Cheshire Bridge. If you take this lane, you CANNOT turn right onto Monroe going toward Ansley Mall.

The right lane allows you to go straight, turn right onto Armour, OR turn left onto Armour then immediately right onto Monroe toward Ansley Mall (bypassing the roundabout). 

Watch the (extremely amateur) video to see these new traffic lane patterns in action.
