The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is warning drivers it will be working on the I-75 Express Lanes and I-285 again this weekend. Lanes will be closed for construction, which may cause delays.

There is also a Hawks game Sunday evening, so GDOT is warning drivers traffic will be busy around Philips Arena.
