Weekend lane closure set for Ga. 400 north

SOUTH FORSYTH -- Motorists travelling on Ga. 400 in Forsyth County this weekend may experience delays as Georgia Department of Transportation contractors will continuously close one northbound lane to work on the ongoing widening project.

The highway will be reduced to one lane between McFarland Parkway (Exit 12) and Buford Hwy./Hwy. 20 (Exit 14) from Saturday at 7 a.m. through Monday at noon, weather permitting.

“Motorists should significantly reduce their speeds while traveling through the work zone. Workers and heavy equipment will be in close proximity to the roadway,” said Katie Strickland, District 1 spokeswoman for GDOT.

Regular speed limits for highway construction zones are 55 miles per hour.

This expanse of the project is on track to open to a widened three lanes — from two — in October.
