Georgia Department of Transportation contractors will install overnight lane closures this weekend to continue a resurfacing project on State Road 42/Briarcliff Road from Briarcliff Place to SR 13/Buford Highway in DeKalb County.
Transportation officials say the resurfacing project will produce a smoother ride for drivers while also improving the condition of the deteriorating roadway.
Weather and on-site conditions permitting, one alternating right or left lane within the project limits will be closed on Briarcliff Road northbound or southbound from 9 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30 until 8 a.m. Saturday morning, and from 9 p.m. on Sunday until 5 a.m. Monday morning.
Lane closures help ensure safety for workers and drivers through the project area as crews continue milling, inlay and resurfacing to improve the deteriorating roadway.
This $3.5 million project is scheduled for completion in fall 2022.
GDOT reminds motorists to expect delays, exercise caution, and reduce their speed while traveling through the work zone during the project work hours. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. Call 511, visit 511ga.org, or download the Georgia 511 app.
