The Georgia Department of Transportation is back to business as usual after a Memorial Day respite and I-285 will feature heavily in its weekend construction plans.

GDOT says, “Motorists again are asked to avoid non-essential travel on Interstate 285. Projects there will require lane closures, which, in turn, are likely to result in delays.”

Clear enough. Here’s what’s on the to-do list …

– On I-285, two northbound lanes will close from SR 280/ South Cobb Drive to South Atlanta Road and two southbound lanes will close from SR 139/ Martin Luther King Jr. Drive to SR 8/ US 278/ Hollowell Parkway from 9 pm, Friday until 5 am, Monday for concrete rehabilitation;
