Overnight drivers along the Downtown Connector can expect just as much traffic as daytime riders.

For about a week, the ramps along the Downtown Connector will close for a six-mile resurfacing project from University Avenue to the Brookwood interchange, the Georgia Department of Transportation said. The highway was last resurfaced in 2008.

Resurfacing work began at 9 p.m. Monday and is expected to end at 5 a.m. next Monday. The Brookwood and I-20 interchanges will not have complete ramp closures. Emergency vehicles will be allowed access to the ramps. Exact dates may change due to weather or other factors.

Resurfacing work began July 25 along the Connector.

Here are the ramp closures:

9 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday: I-75/I-85 northbound exit ramp to 17th Street (Exit No. 251A) and two northbound lanes and a shoulder will close between University Avenue and Freedom Parkway. Northbound ramps will close to allow crews to repair signal loops at Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Irwin Street, International Boulevard, Freedom Parkway, Spring Street and Williams Street.

9 p m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday: Two northbound lanes and a shoulder will close between University Avenue and the Brookwood Interchange.

9 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday: Two northbound lanes and a shoulder will close between University Avenue and the Brookwood Interchange.

9 p.m. Friday to 8 a.m. Saturday: Two northbound lanes and a shoulder will close between University Avenue and Freedom Parkway.

9 p.m. Saturday to 9 a.m. Sunday: NO WORK ON DOWNTOWN CONNECTOR PROJECT
