traffic cone

To ease Fourth of July holiday weekend traffic congestion, the Georgia Department of Transportation is suspending construction-related lane closures on interstate highways starting at noon Friday.

The lane closures will be suspended until 5 a.m. July 5.

Lane closures will also be limited on state routes that directly serve major tourist and recreation centers.  

DOT “reminds motorists that crews may still work in proximity to highways; and safety concerns may require some long-term lane closures to remain in place,” according to a press release from the agency.
