The music festival traffic snarls are over, but weekend construction work continues.

Construction crews will be placing beams on the I-85 and Ga. 400 Interchange project this weekend, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.

The project will close two lanes on I-85 northbound from Piedmont Road to Ga. 400 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.

There also will be work associated with the project on Sidney Marcus Boulevard, Cheshire Bridge Road, Lenox Road and Buford Highway.

Construction crews also will be closing single lanes on I-285, I-75 and I-20 to conduct drain cleaning and shoulder sweeping.
