Work will likely cause delays on I-285 across the top end, in the I-285/I-75 interchange in Cobb County, on GA 400 northbound near the I-85 interchange, and on I-85 northbound between Pleasantdale Road and Jimmy Carter Boulevard.
Contractors on the I-285 top end resurfacing project will have up to three lanes closed in both directions for paving and bridge joint work.
Additionally, several ramps and ramp lanes will be closed at various times in the I-75/I-285 interchange and at the I-75/Windy Hill Road interchange. Detours will be in place for these closures but motorists are urged to plan ahead and avoid these areas if possible as extreme delays are expected.
"After last weekend's rainout, the contractors are ready to go this weekend," said GDOT District Construction Engineer Shun Pringle. "Motorists need to seek alternate routes around the Cobb cloverleaf and Windy Hill Road. Traffic will be extremely heavy in those areas - guaranteed."
On I-85 northbound from Pleasantdale Road to Jimmy Carter Boulevard, up to three lanes will be closed at various times throughout the weekend for barrier wall and bridge work.
On 400 at 85, various single lane closures in both directions will be in place as construction on the big interchange project continues. Delays are expected and motorists should seek alternate routes to avoid backups.
Also as part of the same project, contractors will continue flagging operations on surface streets around the interchange and the HOV ramps at I-85 and Lindbergh Drive remain closed until mid-July for work on the bridge columns for the interchange.
