Express lanes, resurfacing projects to delay traffic

Coming back into town from the Democratic National Convention?

You may want to fly instead.

Delays on I-20 and the work on the express lanes may make you wish you were a part of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport’s 101 million (and growing) fliers.

There are a few bright spots. There should be no traffic delays along Ga. 400.

The Downtown Connector resurfacing project will also take a small break this weekend, but here are other trouble spots:
