Weather-related issues; I-85 work planned near Suwanee

*Reports of weather-related problems in our area are beginning to come in this morning. The Dawson County Sheriff’s Office, for instance, is reporting “debris countywide” and some trees and power lines down.

*Weather permitting, Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) maintenance crews will close the northbound and southbound left lanes on I-85 from Suwanee to Lawrenceville Road later this week to perform work on the concrete median. The work will also involve closure of the Peach Pass lanes in both directions. The work is scheduled Wednesday and Thursday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
