Major delays expected around SR 400/I-85 Interchange

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Motorists can expect major delays around the State Route 400/I-85 Interchanges caused by construction this weekend.

Two lanes northbound and up to three lanes southbound on I-85 will be closed Friday night and will extend through most of the weekend. Construction crews are installing bridge beams across the interstate. Officials warn of traffic pacing in both directions in the lanes that remain open.

Metro Atlanta District Construction Engineer Shun Pringle tells CBS Atlanta, "that the delays on I-85 in both directions are going to be extreme. We tried to schedule the northbound closures overnight to lessen the impact of the Buford-Springs closures."  

Georgia DOT urges motorist to call 511 for updated information concerning this weekend's construction projects. 

Beginning Wednesday night, there will be no construction through the July 4th holiday weekend.
