ATLANTA -- If you need a place to avoid this weekend, State Route 400 will be the place.

Contractors and Georgia DOT forces will be working on the GA400 / I-85 interchange as well as performing maintenance inside the Atlanta Financial Center tunnel, weather permitting.

Workers will continue the construction of the bridges in the SR 400 / I-85 interchange. Also crews will close two right northbound lanes of GA400 for maintenance of the exhaust fans inside the Atlanta Financial Center Tunnel.

Additionally, during the overnight hours on Friday, two outside lanes in both directions will be closed on I-20 in Dekalb County between Columbia Drive and Wesley Chapel Road for the installation of a new overhead sign structure. The lanes should be reopened by 5 a.m. on Saturday.

"As folks are out shopping this weekend we ask that they stay alert and watch for these work zones," said GDOT District Construction Engineer Lee Upkins. "Our goal is to get the work done but also to keep the workers and the public safe."
