Weekend roadwork – Nighttime projects planned
The Georgia Department of Transportation promises few daytime traffic disruptions this weekend, saying most of the scheduled work will occur overnight.
GDOT’s update says, “With the exception of a one-hour long ramp closure at the I-75/Northside Drive (SR 3) interchange and a single lane closure in the northeast quadrant of I-285, all other work is scheduled during the overnight hours, weather permitting.”
GDOT says it will need to close the loop ramp on the I-75/Northside Interchange from Northside Drive northbound to I-75 southbound. The closure will last from 8:30 am to 9:30 am on Saturday so maintenance crews can fix a guardrail. Drivers should take Howell Mill Road to get to I-75 southbound during the closure, GDOT says.
On GDOT’s weekend to-do list for overnight work:
· Three left lanes closed on I-85 southbound from North Druid Hills Road to SR 400 for sign work.
· Three right lanes closed on I-20 westbound from Glenwood Road to Gresham Road for restriping.
· Two right lanes closed on I-75 northbound from Canton Road to Chastain Road for concrete work.
· Two left lanes closed on I-285 eastbound from Northside Drive to Riverside Drive to pour concrete sign footings.
