atlanta-traffic1-150x150If you’re traveling on the Downtown Connector this weekend or northbound on I-85 near Georgia 400, expect heavy traffic. As work continues on the Georgia 400/I-85 interchange, traffic will often be limited to one lane in the northbound direction. That means traffic on Sidney Marcus Boulevard and Cheshire Bridge Road will be heavily impacted and closures are expected on those streets as well as the flyover ramp construction continues.

Bridge maintenance and painting at Freedom Parkway on the Downtown Connector is likely to cause a few delays this weekend, too. On Techwood Drive, between 16th and 14th, watch out for sidewalk and retaining wall work that might also slow traffic in Midtown.
