Following an extended holiday hiatus from construction-related lane closures, work resumes Friday and this weekend on limited stretches of Interstate Highway 85 and the Buford-Spring Connector.

Weather permitting, Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) contractors will close both the north and southbound HOV lanes on I-85 from 9 p.m., Friday, until 5 a.m., Saturday, between the Clairmont and Lenox/Cheshire Bridge interchanges. 

Workers will be preparing footings for sign structures related to the soon-to-open I-85/Georgia State Route 400 interchange flyover ramps. 

Moreover, beginning at 9 p.m., Friday, and continuing throughout the weekend until 5 a.m., Monday, these HOV lanes and their adjacent lanes in both directions in the same corridor will be closed for similar work. 

In addition, the inside (left) shoulders of I-85 in both directions in this corridor will be closed continuously from 9 p.m., Friday, until February 7 for the same work.

Also, another GDOT contractor plans, weather permitting, to continuously close one inside (left) lane of Buford-Spring/State Route 13 in both directions from 9 p.m., Friday, until 5 a.m., Monday, between Monroe Drive and Lindbergh Road for bridge joints replacement. (One lane in each direction will remain open throughout this period.)

On Interstate Highway 75 SB north of the Brookwood Split, two outside (right) lanes will be closed from 9 p.m., Friday, until 5 a.m., Saturday, for sign structure installation.

And on I-75 NB between SR 166 and Cleveland Avenue, three outside (right) lanes will be closed from 9 p.m., Saturday, until 5 a.m., Sunday, for similar work.

Motorists are advised to proceed cautiously in these construction work zones.
