The shift between Whitney Way and Verona Road was planned to begin Saturday night and take effect Sunday morning, according to the state Department of Transportation. The lane changes will continue through late fall 2015. All lanes of traffic will remain open in each direction.
Ramps will close at Whitney Way to the eastbound Beltline and Eastbound Beltline to Verona Road and Midvale Boulevard from 10 p.m. Saturday to 8 a.m. Sunday, the DOT said.
Delays should be expected, especially during peak travel times Monday, officials said .
The DOT said motorists should allow for additional time if traveling eastbound on the Beltline Saturday through Monday and be especially alert in work zones.
