'Don't go east, don't go west': Weekend construction alert

(WXIA) -- "Avoid I-20 if you can." That warning, from Georgia Department of Transportation district construction engineer Shun Pringle, applies to Atlanta-area drivers this weekend.

Several road projects and lane closures will be in place along the east-west highway.

"We don't like to close lanes, but the work has to get done, and we have to take advantage of the good-weather weekends," Pringle said in a release.

Scheduled I-20 projects include:

* Two left eastbound lanes will be closed between Highway 138 (Rockdale) and Alcovy Road (Newton) from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for resurfacing.

* Two right westbound lanes will be closed between Bill Arp and Liberty roads (Douglas) from 8 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday for resurfacing.

* Two right eastbound lanes will be closed between Liberty and Bill Arp roads (Douglas) from 7 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for resurfacing.

* Three right eastbound lanes will be closed between Moreland Avenue and Columbia Drive (DeKalb) from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly for striping.

Weekends events that may affect traffic include a Gladys Knight concert at the Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater in Peachtree City on Friday night; Party in the Park at Centennial Olympics Park on Saturday afternoon; Festival at the Plaza at the Atlanta Civic Center on Sunday afternoon; and Sunday's Walk for Autism at Atlantic Station.
