Georgia DOT Limits I-95 Lane Closures During 4th of July Weekend

To ease 4th of July holiday weekend traffic congestion, the Georgia Department of Transportation is suspending construction-related lane closures on Interstate Highways from noon on Friday, June 30 to 5 a.m. on Wednesday, July 5.

“As people head to festivities like parades, barbecues and fireworks, we expect heavy traffic” said Georgia DOT State Construction Engineer John Hancock “By restricting lane closures, we hope drivers will encounter fewer delays and less stress.”

Safety is always a primary concern. The Department 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. Also, incident management or emergency maintenance-related lane closures could become necessary at any time on any route. Whenever you approach a work zone: slow down; allow extra
distance between vehicles; read signs; obey road crew flaggers; and expect the unexpected. Work zone safety is in your hands.

Georgia DOT urges drivers to Drive Alert Arrive Alive – to always buckle up, stay off the phone and focus on driving.

In the event of a crash or breakdown, GDOT advises motorists to never get out of the car on a freeway,  unless your life is in imminent danger. If possible, pull off the road, turn on your hazard lights and stay seat-belted in the vehicle with the doors locked.

For HERO assistance in metro Atlanta or CHAMP service on highways in other regions of Georgia call 511, a free phone service that provides real-time statewide information on Georgia’s interstates and state routes, such as traffic conditions, incidents, lane closures, and delays due to inclement weather. Callers can transfer to operators to request assistance or report incidents 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission (DRJTBC) $396 million Scudder Falls Bridge replacement project will replace the functionally obsolete 57-year-old bridge that carries I-95 over the Delaware River between New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The project will replace the current four-lane bridge with a dual-span structure carrying six lanes of through traffic and three auxiliary lanes for merging on and off I-95 at the interchanges, as well as make additional roadway improvements along the 4.4 mile corridor between Route 332 in Pennsylvania and CR579 in New Jersey. Preparation for the bridge replacement project began in April 2017. Construction is expected to be completed by 2022.

Variable message signs are being utilized throughout the project limits to provide advance notification to motorists of traffic pattern changes associated with the bridge, interchange and roadway improvements project.
