To allow for the anticipated increase in Labor Day weekend traffic congestion, Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) announced the suspension of lane closures on Georgia interstates and state routes beginning Friday, September 2 at 12:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. Tuesday, September 6.
While construction related lane closures will be suspended, the department reminds travelers to exercise caution as crews may still work near highways, and safety concerns may require some long-term lane closures to remain in place. In addition, incident management, emergency or maintenance-related lane closures could become necessary at any time on any route.
Georgia DOT’s 5-day travel forecast for the holiday weekend indicates the heaviest traffic volumes may materialize on Friday, September 2, with moderate traffic predicted on Saturday, September 3. Light traffic is expected on both Sunday, September 4 and Monday, September 5. Forecasts are based on historical traffic volumes on similar dates around the Labor Day weekend. Please note the below changes to the South Metro Corridor Express Lane operational schedule beginning Friday, September 2 through Monday, September 5.
