Project Name: I-285 & SR 400 Interchange Reconstruction Project

Program Budget: $803 Million

Date: 2016

The Georgia Department of Transportation’s (GDOT) I-285 & SR 400 Interchange Reconstruction Project will rebuild the I-285/SR 400 Interchange and make improvements along I-285 from west of Roswell Road in Fulton County to East of Ashford-Dunwoody Road in DeKalb County (4.3 miles), as well as along SR 400 from the Glenridge Connector to Spalding Drive (6.2 miles) for a total project length of 10.5 miles. The completed Design-Build-Finance (DBF) project is expected to reduce traffic congestion and improve safety in the area surrounding the I-285/SR 400 Interchange in the Atlanta area.

ATSER has been selected by GDOT to provide a Material Acceptance Testing System (MATS) for the I-285 & SR 400 Interchange Reconstruction Project. GDOT expects to expand the total number of their innovative delivery projects. This increase required GDOT to identify a more robust software solution that would assist with the validation of Design-Builders’ acceptance programs. The FHWA CFR 23 requires the agencies to validate material acceptance results from Design-Builders. Historically, GDOT made use of their own in-house software solution, but with the expected increase of strategic projects, GDOT was seeking a more comprehensive solution.

ATSER’s Assure-IT™ provides a software solution designed for agencies with acceptance and validation decisions. The software also provides governance and standardization for construction management, inspection and testing requirements.

Assure-IT™ is a unique quality management software solution for collecting, analyzing, reporting, archiving and facilitating future retrieval. The electronic feature facilitates communication between the contractor, inspection and testing requests. The material testing features allow the collection, analysis and reporting in real-time. The data is shared with all team members via the web.
