After a holiday hiatus, the Georgia Department of Transportation will be back at it this weekend, with projects on I-20 and I-285.
“After a much-deserved respite from lane closures throughout the Thanksgiving weekend, motorists again are asked to avoid non-essential travel on west side I-20,” the announcement from GDOT says. “Projects there will require lane closures which, in turn, are likely to result in delays.”
The to-do list, from GDOT:
– Bridge joint and header replacement will require closing one eastbound I-20 lane and one westbound I-20 lane between Six Flags Parkway and its I-285 interchange continuously from 9 pm, Friday, until 5 am, Monday;
– Similar bridge work will require two westbound I-20 lanes from Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard to Lawton Street be closed continuously from 9 pm, Friday, until 5 am, Monday;
– Sign structure work on eastside I-285 will require an Outer Loop double lane closure and an Inner Loop single lane closure between Glenwood Road and Covington Highway, continuously from 9 pm, Friday, until 9 pm, Saturday;
– Similar sign work on southwest side I-285 will necessitate a 9 pm, Friday, until 5 am, Monday, closure of two Outer Loop lanes between Washington Road and the I-285 interchange with Interstate 85;
– Bridge repairs in Newton County will require both entrance and exit ramp closures on westbound I-20 at State Route 12 from 9 pm, Friday, until 5 am, Monday; and
– On Georgia (State Route) 400, one lane northbound and one lane southbound between Lenox Road and the Glenridge Connector will be closed from 9 pm, Friday, until 5 am, Monday, for fiber optic cable installation.
