Motorists wanting to travel on GA 400 near I-85 or on I-285 across the top end this weekend may want to seek alternate routes or plan for significant delays as Georgia Department of Transportation project work continues, weather permitting.

Bridge joint work will close three left lanes on I-285 eastbound from I-75 to Roswell Road and three right lanes westbound from Northside Drive to Powers Ferry Road all weekend. Long delays are expected.

All weekend, contractors will continue the construction of the bridges in the GA 400/I-85 interchange. Flagging operations on surface streets around the interchange and various lane closures on GA 400 are expected to cause delays in the area so motorists should plan ahead to avoid the backups, GDOT said.
