Georgia Department of Transportation projects to improve highway infrastructure throughout metro Atlanta and statewide continue this weekend, weather permitting.
Major projects of interest that will likely impact traffic are the resurfacing projects on I-75/I-85 (Downtown Connector) and I-75, I-20, and Northwest Corridor. The lane closures will likely result in delays.
The Georgia DOT encourages motorists to call 511, visit 511ga.org or check the 511 Georgia and Atlanta Traffic app before departing for real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. Motorists can also use the WAZE application turn-by-turn directions that consider current traffic conditions; Georgia DOT advises motorist to drive alert and prepare applications before departing from their location.
Motorists are also advised to exercise caution by reducing speed while driving through work zones.
