(WXIA) -- The Downtown Connector is one of several metro Atlanta highways to be affected by weekend roadwork.
Georgia Department of Transportation engineer Shun Pringle said three left northbound lanes of Interstate 75/85 will be closed nightly for sign work. The closures will happen between Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Pine Street.
Three left southbound lanes will also be closed nightly at Freedom Parkway for bridge painting.
All Downtown Connector work will happen at night; Pringle said the interstate will be completely open during daylight hours.
However, some daylight work will occur on I-85 in both directions between Clairmont and Lenox roads. Crews will work on highway signs, forcing them to close two left lanes in each direction. Drivers traveling through the area should plan ahead for possible delays.
