ATLANTA (AP) - Construction work and rainy weather as motorists head south for spring break could create weekend slowdowns on metro Atlanta freeways.

The Georgia Department of Transportation tell FOX 5 News that multiple lane closures are planned on Interstate 85 this weekend.

The Georgia Department of Transportation said up to four southbound lanes on I-85 near Georgia 400 would be closed during parts of the weekend as crews work to put up new signs.

GDOT Commissioner Keith Golden said that if weather permits, the work will occur on I-85 southbound from a half-mile north of Clairmont Road to North Druid Hills Road. Rain expected on Saturday could change those plans.
