ATLANTA (CBS46) -

City officials are inviting the public to come out and celebrate the reopening of I-85 bridge with the Cheshire Bridge Dine and Shop Week. 

Dine and Shop Week is hosted by several organizations including Cheshire Bridge Road Restaurant & Retail Association, the Piedmont Heights Civic Association, the Lindridge Martin Manor Neighborhood Association, the Morningside Lenox Park Association and Invest Atlanta, the city of Atlanta’s economic development agency.

“This is an important first step in ensuring that the businesses along this important corridor recover as quickly as possible from the significant negative economic impact the I-85 bridge collapse has had,” said City Councilmember Alex Wan. “It will take some time, however it is great to see the adjacent neighborhoods join me in welcoming the broader community back to the restaurants and retailers that make this area so special.”

Several restaurants will be offering food and drink specials during the week's festivities May 17- May 21.
