Weekend roadwork planned for I-85, Ga. 400, Connector

(WXIA) -- With a warm weekend on the horizon, the Georgia Department of Transportation plans to perform some much-needed roadwork throughout north Georgia.

Closures and delays can be expected on a number of major roads and highways.

"Plan ahead -- I can't say it enough," GDOT District Construction Engineer Shun Pringle said in a release. "If you plan ahead, you can avoid some potentially heavy delays."

Some notable roadwork includes:

Downtown Connector
Two right lanes of I-75/85 north near University Avenue will be closed for pavement work Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

I-285
Three lanes will be closed in both directions between West Paces Ferry and Roswell roads for sign replacements. All work will take place overnight -- from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

I-85
Two left northbound lanes will be closed Saturday and two right southbound lanes will be closed Sunday between Clairmont Road and Georgia 400. Both closures are due to sign work and will take place from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Heavy delays are expected through the area.

Georgia 400
Two right northbound lanes will be closed Saturday between I-85 and Sidney Marcus Boulevard for concrete work. Drivers should expect delays.

Rolling lane closures will also take place throughout metro Atlanta for street sweeping.
