(WXIA) -- The threat of rain this weekend could provide some welcome relief for Atlanta-area drivers.
The Georgia Department of Transportation has already postponed a handful of road projects, thanks to the weather.
Resurfacing on Interstate 20 in Rockdale and Newton counties, and concrete replacement on the west side of I-285 have been canceled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
GDOT said it plans to move ahead with scheduled resurfacing on I-20 between Douglasville and Villa Rica, as it is very close to finishing the work -- well ahead of its projected November completion date. However, rain may briefly halt crews.
