The Buford-Spring Connector and other weekend construction

ATLANTA -- Cobb County drivers can breathe a sigh of relief this weekend -- a major construction project has been completed two weeks ahead of schedule.

For the past several weekend, North Marietta Parkway (Highway 120) in Marietta has been partially closed on weekends as crews worked to replace concrete slabs.

Georgia Department of Transportation engineer Shun Pringle said the project is now done.

"It is always good when we can get something done early," Pringle said. "We appreciate the public's patience through the few difficult traffic weekends we were out there."

However, drivers on the Buford-Spring Connector in Atlanta won't be quite as lucky this weekend. Heavy delays are expected around the Georgia 400/Interstate 85 interchange project.

Pringle said there will also be intermittent closures on nearby Sidney Marcus Boulevard and Cheshire Bridge Road.

But overall, the highways will be mostly clear during the day this weekend. Most possible delays will occur at night.

GDOT has a note for drivers in Buckhead and Midtown: crews will be moving the Randolph-Lucas House from 2500 Peachtree Road to 78 Peachtree Circle beginning Friday at midnight. The project should be completed by 6 a.m. Saturday. Sections of Peachtree Street in Midtown will be closed to allow a dolly transport system to move the historic house, piece by piece.

Road projects outside the Perimeter include:

* Work and rolling closures on southbound I-85 in Bank and Gwinnett counties
* Work on the exit ramp from I-985 to Friendship Road in Hall County
* Rolling closures on I-85 north in Coweta County
* Work and a rolling closure on northbound I-75 in Henry County
* Work on northbound I-75 and a rolling closure on southbound I-75 in Cherokee County
