Rain could affect weekend roadwork

ATLANTA -- The Georgia Department of Transportation has not scheduled much roadwork for this weekend.

Rain resulting from Tropical Storm Karen could move through metro Atlanta on Sunday and cancel any existing projects as well.

"We have single right lane closures planned for both directions on I-285 on the east side between Cascade and MLK and one on (Georgia) 400 southbound at Hammond Drive but the weather may change those plans," said GDOT Metro District Construction Engineer Shun Pringle.

Work will also continue on the I-85/Georgia 400 Interchange project, which could result in lane closures on Buford Highway, Sidney Marcus Boulevard, Cheshire Bridge Road and Lenox Road.

Pringle added that single lane closures could occur on I-285, I-75 and I-20 so crews can clean drains and sweep shoulders.
