The trouble spots will be I-75 south of I-20 and I-285 between Chamblee-Tucker and Ashford-Dunwoody Roads, the agencies reported.

On I-75, three right southbound lanes will be closed from University Avenue to Cleveland Avenue all weekend as well, a press release says. Perimeter CIDs reports the I-75/I-85 southbound ramps to Metropolitan Parkway and Ga. 166 will also be closed for resurfacing. The Perimiter CIDs press release says detours will be in place for those ramps.
