Braves fans headed to the final three games at Turner Field this weekend can expect heavy delays along the Downtown Connector. Road work isn’t expected to start until 10 p.m., so fans will have to fight through rush our traffic getting to the game 7: 35 p.m. Friday and sit in it after the game.

Sunday’s commute may be easier since the game starts at 3 p.m.

Commuters along I-75 and I-285 can expect heavier traffic due to express-lanes work.

Unlike your typical work week, Ga. 400 may give drivers less of a headache.
