To ease traffic congestion statewide during the Labor Day holiday weekend, the Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) is suspending interstate highway construction-related lane closures from noon Friday, Aug.31 until 5 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4. Lane closures will also be limited on major state routes that directly serve key tourist and recreation centers.

“Labor Day weekend is quickly approaching and we expect heavy traffic statewide as vacation travelers take to the roadways for a final summer trip,” said Georgia DOT State Construction Engineer John D. Hancock. “We are limiting construction and associated lane closures to make travel to Georgia’s lakes, parks and tourist attractions easier and safer for all.”
