Weather permitting, the Georgia Department of Transportation will continue work on the I-75 express lanes and on I-285. The work will require lane closures and will create delays.

Here is the full list of projects, provided by GDOT:

[adsanity id=27331 align=aligncenter /]

– On I-75, two northbound lanes will close between Windy Hill Road and SR 280/Delk Road from 9 p.m., Friday until 5 a.m., Monday.

– On I-75, two southbound lanes will close between SR 280/Delk Road and Windy Hill Road from 9 p.m., Sunday until 5 a.m., Monday.

– On I-75, all northbound and southbound lanes will narrow over the I-285 eastbound collector-distributor lanes between Cumberland Boulevard and the I-285 interchange from9 p.m., Friday until 5 a.m., Saturday.

– On I-75, a traffic pace will occur on all southbound lanes between SR 120 Loop/ South Marietta Parkway and Windy Hill Road from 9 p.m., Friday until 5 a.m., Monday. The traffic pace will require motorists to drive 5 mph -10 mph to allow contractors to work across the interstate lanes.

– One lane will close on the I-285 westbound ramp to I-75 northbound from 9 p.m.,Friday until 5 a.m., Saturday and from 9 p.m., Sunday until 5 a.m., Monday.

– On I-285, traffic traveling on the eastbound collector-distributer lane to I-75 northbound will be directed to take the I-75 southbound exit ramp (Exit 20) to Cumberland Boulevard. Traffic will then be directed to turn left on Cumberland Boulevard followed by another left to then enter I-75 Northbound via the ramp from Cumberland Boulevard. The I-75 southbound ramp to I-285 eastbound Collector Lanes (Exit-259A) will also be closed, and traffic will need to take the primary ramp (Exit-259) to access I-285 eastbound from I-75 southbound. The detour will take place nightly from 9 p.m., Friday until 5 a.m., Monday.

– On I-285, a traffic pace will occur on the eastbound collector-distributer lanes from 9 p.m., Friday until 5 a.m., Saturday.

South Metro Express Lanes

– On I-75, one northbound and one southbound lane and shoulder will close between the I-675 interchange and Mt. Zion Boulevard from 9 p.m., Friday until 5 a.m., Mondayfor the northbound lane and from 9 p.m., Friday until 7 a.m., Monday for the southbound lane.

– On I-75, one northbound lane and shoulder will close between SR 155 and SR 20/SR 80 from 9 p.m., Friday until 5 a.m., Monday.

I-75/I-85

– Three northbound lanes will close between University Avenue and the I-20 interchange from 7 a.m., until 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. The lanes will close to allow crews to patch the road.

I-75

– One southbound lane will close between SR 280/Delk Road and SR 120 Loop/ South Marietta Parkway from 9 p.m., Friday until 4 p.m., Saturday.

– Rolling closures will take place on the northbound and southbound lanes between SR 138 and Cumberland Boulevard. The closures will take place from 9 p.m., Friday until 5 a.m., Monday to allow crews to install road pavement markers (RPM). Installing RPMs on the interstate is a slow moving operation; therefore, Georgia DOT contractors will subsequently slow down traffic traveling on I-75 to complete their work. Motorists should expect multiple lane closures at a time and slow down while driving through the work zone.

I-285

– On the southwest side of the Perimeter, two northbound lanes will close between the I-85 interchange (exit 62) and the I-20 interchange (exit 10) from 6 a.m., until 8 p.m.,Saturday and Sunday.

– One eastbound lane and the shoulder will close between SR 70/Fulton Industrial Boulevard and the I-285 interchange from 9 p.m., Friday until 7 p.m., Sunday.

– Two eastbound lanes will close between SR 139/ Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard from  10 p.m., Friday until 7 p.m., Sunday.

– One eastbound and two westbound lanes will close between SR 139/ Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and SR 280/H.E. Holmes from 9 p.m., Friday until 5 a.m., Monday for bridge joint rehabilitation.

Georgia (State Route) 400

– Georgia (State Route) 400 southbound ramp to I-285 eastbound will close from 9 p.m., Friday until 12 a.m., Saturday. Traffic traveling on GA 400 southbound will use the Glendridge Connector exit. The closure will allow contractors to repair the guardrail.

– A traffic pace will take place on all Georgia (State Route) 400 northbound and southbound lanes between Mansell Road and Haynes Bridge Road from 7 a.m., until 8 a.m., Sunday. The traffic pace will require motorists to drive 5 mph -10 mph to allow contractors to work across the interstate lanes.
