Metro Road Work…

Construction & Lane Closures Weekend Schedule   


ATLANTA— Georgia Department of Transportation projects to improve highway infrastructure throughout Metropolitan Atlanta will continue Monday due to winter weather during the weekend of 1/6/17-1/8/17; (please see link below and/or attached document). No special events will occur this weekend.


Major projects of interest that will likely impact traffic are the resurfacing projects on I-75/I-85 (Downtown Connector) and I-75, I-20, and Northwest Corridor. The lane closures will likely result in delays.


The Georgia DOT encourages motorists to call 511, visit , or check the 511 Georgia and Atlanta Traffic app before departing for real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. Motorists can also use the WAZE application turn-by-turn directions that consider current traffic conditions. Motorists are advised to drive alert and use both applications when they are not operating a vehicle.


Motorists are advised to exercise caution by reducing speed while driving through work zones.

Other Georgia DOT work and routine maintenance will necessitate various lane closures on Monday (as detailed in the attached spreadsheets); the Department also cautions that incident and emergency repair related closures may be necessary on any route at any time. As always, drive cautiously, courteously, undistracted and unimpaired.
