Weekend construction and lane closures

Weekend construction and lane closures

Georgia Department of Transportation road projects throughout metro Atlanta continue this weekend, weather permitting.

Construction projects on I-285 and other interstates will require lane closures, which, in turn, are likely to result in delays. Motorists are advised to exercise caution by reducing speed while driving through work zones.
