Good news, Cobb County: Last week’s traffic pace, which shut down all lanes of I-75 around Windy Hill Road for three hours Sunday morning, will not be repeated this weekend. Instead, law enforcement will slow down traffic in that same area to allow utility crews to work, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation. But no lanes will be closed.

Below, take a look at the complete list of planned roadwork and lane closures around metro Atlanta’s interstates this weekend.
