One Big Circular Parking Lot

I stole this tidbit from yesterday’s AJC via a friend. Consider my theft as a Public Service Announcement.

The state Department of Transportation has some advice for metro Atlanta motorists this weekend: Stay away from the Perimeter Highway, if possible.

The DOT says construction on Interstate 285 on all four sides of Atlanta will result in long traffic delays. There will be multiple lane closures around I-285 from Friday night to early Monday.

Further complicating weekend driving in the metro area: additional work on I-85, I-20 and Georgia 400. According to the Georgia Navigator Web site, additional work is planned starting Friday night on the Downtown Connector.

Not only that, but tractor-trailers normally prohibited from using the Downtown Connector will be encouraged to use that route because of the work on 285.

DOT spokeswoman Vicki Gavalas says the agency is pleading with people to stay off the Perimeter.

You have been warned.

    Yeah… this weekend should be a lot of fun… just try not to get on perimeter… :-) Guess all the back roads in and out are going to be busy…
