Major roadwork resumes this weekend

(WXIA) -- Last weekend, drivers got a bit of a reprieve when several major road projects were postponed. But all that work will resume this weekend.

Some of the problem areas include Interstate 20 in Rockdale and Newton counties, and I-285 in Cobb County.

As always, all roadwork is weather permitting. Rain could halt or postpone projects.

Weekend drivers should use caution and look for crews in these areas:

Bartow County
* One right southbound lane of I-75 will be closed four miles before Cass White Road from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for concrete slab removal and bridge raising.
* One left northbound lane of I-75 will be closed four miles after Cass White Road from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for concrete slab removal and bridge raising.

Cobb County
* Two right northbound lanes of I-285 will be closed between South Cobb Drive and Paces Ferry Road from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for concrete slab replacement and repair.

Fulton County
* Two left northbound lanes and one left southbound lane of I-285 will be closed between I-75 and Northside Drive from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for sign structure work.
* One right northbound lane of Ga. 400 will be closed between Sidney Marcus Boulevard and Lenox Road from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for underground cable work.

Fulton/DeKalb counties
* One left northbound lane of I-285 will be closed in sequential two-mile increments between I-75 and Chamblee Tucker Road from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for sign structure work.

Rockdale/Newton counties
* Two right eastbound lanes of I-20 will be closed on a three-mile stretch between Conyers and Covington from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for resurfacing.
* The exit and entrance ramps to Almon Road in Covington will be closed all weekend.

Weekend events that may impact traffic include the Sweet Auburn Music Fest, the Braves' series against the Washington Nationals and Friday's Falcons/Dolphins game at the Georgia Dome.
