Week­end traf­fic fore­cast: Ugly

The Covington News - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s a safe bet traf­fic this week­end will be ter­ri­ble when the spokesman for the Ge­or­gia Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion says “you sim­ply don’t want to be on In­ter­state 285.”

The DOT will “con­tinue a trio of pro­jects likely to test the pa­tience of I-285 week­end mo­torists and the air con­di­tion­ing of their ve­hi­cles,” David Spear wrote in a press re­lease Thurs­day. So avoid the Perime­ter.

Don’t ex­pect a break lo­cally, ei­ther. Work­ers in New­ton County will close two out­side (right) In­ter­state 20 east­bound lanes between Al­mon Road and the U.S. 278 in­ter­change from 9 p.m. Fri­day, un­til 5 a.m. Mon­day for resur­fac­ing.

Other work-re­lated clo­sures are planned In­ter­state 75 north­bound, I-575 south­bound, and on Free­dom Park­way.
