  • Metro Atlantans should be able to enjoy the spring weather this weekend without the hassle of too many daytime lane closures, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation. With the exception of a one-hour long ramp closure at the I-75/Northside Drive interchange and a single lane closure in the northeast quadrant of I-285, all other work is scheduled during the overnight hours, weather permitting.

    The work at the I-75/Northside Drive interchange will require the loop ramp from Northside Drive northbound to I-75 southbound be closed for only one hour (8:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.) Saturday morning while maintenance crews repair guardrail. Motorists should use Howell Mill Road to access I-75 southbound during the closure.

    On I -285 westbound from I-20 to State Route 400, one left lane will be closed each day from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. as crews work on the barrier wall. Minor delays are expected.

    Some of the nighttime closures include:
    · 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.

    Additionally, there will be rolling lane closures on interstates across the metro area each night for sweeping operations.
