FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — It may seem like rush hour traffic to anyone planning to use Ga. 400 to commute into Atlanta this weekend. Georgia Department of Transportation has closed one northbound lane between McFarland Parkway/Exit 12 and Peachtree Parkway/Exit 13.
The lane was closed at 9 p.m Friday and will remain closed until noon on Monday while contractors work on widening the busy highway. GDOT officials ask that drivers reduce speeds while in the work zone as workers and heavy equipment will be near the road.
The highway is currently being widened on each side, and the northbound lane to Exit 13 is expected to open by September.
