ATLANTA -- It will be another busy weekend of road construction around the metro.

As the tolls end on State Route 400 on Friday, the Georgia DOT will be focusing on moving motorists around the plaza until the actual structure is removed in early 2014. Beginning after evening rush hour Friday, crews will begin channeling traffic in both directions into the left lanes and around the plaza. The traffic shift should be completed by noon on Saturday, weather permitting.

"We are watching the weather and in order to get the work done, we are allowing the contractor to begin lane closures as early as 7:00 or 7:30, or as soon as they see traffic easing up," said District Construction Engineer Shun Pringle. "We have a lot to do and some of it can't be done in the rain, such as striping. Also, if the rain is too hard it becomes a real safety issue for the workers and the motorists."

The potential work schedule changes will not affect the timing of the end of toll collection. It will still occur during the afternoon on Friday. Also, if the barrier wall placement for the lane shifts is postponed due to weather, the lanes will still be shifted with barrels and the work to place the concrete barriers will resume the following night.

All of the barrier wall will be in place by Monday morning rush hour with three general purpose lanes passing through the plaza in both directions where the two cruise lanes had been.

The only other significant interstate lane closures will be in the overnight hours on I-75/I-85 southbound at Peachtree Street. Contractors will be closing up to three lanes each night at 9:00 for bridge painting but they are scheduled to be out of the roadway by 9:00 a.m. on Saturday and 11:00 a.m. on Sunday.

Additionally, there will be several single lane and shoulder closures, as well as moving closures for utility work, striping and drain cleaning in various locations on I-285, I-20 and on some surface streets.
