The Georgia Department of Transportation is warning drivers to avoid “non-essential” travel on I-20 this weekend.

“Projects there will require lane closures which, in turn, are likely to result in delays,” GDOT says.

The list of projects for this weekend, from GDOT.

– Bridge joint and header replacement will require closing two eastbound I-20 lanes from Six Flags Parkway for approximately one mile continuously from 9 pm, Friday, until 9 pm, Saturday;

– Similar work westbound will necessitate one lane closing from I-285 to Six Flags Parkway from 7 am, until 8 pm, Sunday;

– Also, bridge joint repairs will require two westbound I-20 lanes between McDaniels and Langhorn streets be closed continuously from 9 pm, Friday, until 5 am, Monday;

– Sign structure work on eastside I-285 will require an Outer Loop double lane closure and an Inner Loop single lane closure between Glenwood Road and Covington Highway, continuously from 9 pm, Friday, until 9 pm, Saturday;

– Similar sign work on southwest side I-285 will necessitate a 9 pm, Friday, until 5 am, Monday, closure of two Outer Loop and two Inner Loop lanes between Washington Road and the I-85 interchange;

– Bridge repairs in Newton County will require both entrance and exit ramp closures on westbound I-20 at State Route 12 from 9 pm, Friday, until 5 am, Monday;

– On Georgia (State Route) 400, one lane southbound between I-285 and the Glenridge Connector will be closed from 7 am, until 8 pm, Saturday and Sunday for fiber optic cable installation; and finally

– On U.S. 41/Cobb Parkway at the Chattahoochee River, two northbound lanes will be closed from 7 am, until Noon, Saturday, followed by two southbound lanes from Noon to 6 pm, for pavement repairs.

“As previously noted, all work is contingent upon favorable weather,” GDOT says. “Please, always drive cautiously, courteously, undistracted and unimpaired.”

  • We are planning another visit to Six Flags this weekend. Thanks for the update, Dan! You helped us plan a little better. PS: If you haven’t been to Six Flags for their holiday stuff, I highly recommend it! Just don’t expect a lot of rides open.
