ATLANTA — To ease Memorial Day weekend traffic congestion, the Georgia Department of Transportation is suspending construction-related lane closures from noon Friday through 5 a.m. Tuesday on interstates, and limiting lane closures on state routes that directly serve major tourist and recreation centers.
GDOT reminds travelers to exercise caution, as heavy holiday traffic is expected; crews may still work in proximity to highways; and safety concerns may require some long-term lane closures to remain in place. Also, incident management or emergency, maintenance-related lane closures could become necessary at any time on any route.
For updated information about travel conditions on Georgia’s interstates and state routes, call 511, a free phone service that provides real-time statewide traffic and travel information, such as traffic conditions, incidents, lane closures and delays caused by weather.
