To allow for anticipated increase in Memorial Day weekend traffic congestion, Georgia Department of Transportation (Georgia DOT) announced the suspension of lane closures on Georgia interstates and state routes beginning Friday, May 27 at 12:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. Tuesday, May 31.
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 or emergency, maintenance-related lane closures could become necessary at any time on any route.
Memorial Day weekend traffic is considered to be one of the state’s heaviest travel times. Pedestrian deaths and vehicle crashes are rising to unprecedented levels and Georgia DOT is committed to preserving the safety of all travelers on Georgia’s roadways. The department reminds motorists that many roadway fatalities are preventable by implementing simple changes to eliminate unsafe driving behavior. Please always Drive Alert Arrive Alive by staying off cellphones, buckling up, slowing down and driving sober.
